Do you have the pan off? Filter is inside the pan. Looks like this:

Here are instructions from autozone.com:

Before changing the transmission filter, review the recommended service intervals in the owner's manual and look at the vehicle's maintenance history.
Some transmissions have check balls, valves, and/or springs between the valve body and the filter or screen. Do not remove these. Pay special attention to these as you remove the filter. They can fall out and be lost.

  • Remove transmission pan bolts and pan.
  • Remove the filter and inspect it.
  • Make sure the O-ring for the filter was removed with the filter and not stuck on the housing.
  • Remove any traces of the old pan gasket on the case housing.
  • Then install a new filter and gasket on the bottom of the valve body and tighten the retaining bolts to the specified torque.

CAUTION
Make sure you check the specifications. The required torque is often given in inch-pounds. You can easily break the bolts or damage something if you tighten the bolts to foot-pounds.

  • Some transmissions are equipped with reusable oil pan and valve body gaskets.
  • Check with the service manual before you throw away the old gaskets.
  • Remove any traces of the old pan gasket from the oil pan.
  • Make sure the mounting flange of the oil pan is not distorted and bent.
  • Then re-install the pan using the sealant recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Pour a little less than the required amount of fluid into the transaxle through the dipstick tube.
  • Always use the recommended type of automatic transmission fluid (ATF).
  • Start the engine and allow it to idle for at least one minute.
  • Then, with the parking and service brakes applied, move the gear selector lever momentarily to each position, ending in park.
  • Recheck the fluid level and add a sufficient amount of fluid to bring the level to about 1/8 inch (3.0 mm) below the ADD mark.
  • Run the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature.
  • Then recheck the fluid level; it should be in the hot region on the dipstick.
  • Make sure the dipstick is fully seated into the dipstick tube opening. This will prevent dirt from entering into the transmission.

Ford doesn't use filters on their transmissions. Just change the fluid. Most people do not perscribe to the "Power Flushing" methods, but that would work (if they warranty it).
They do have an "aftermarket" type filter and I have put them on the line to the radiator cooling coil. The problem is if you don't change it when it clogs you can damage the transmission more. If you keep a schedule of replacing your filters, I found one on Ebay for $10/shipping with hose and clamps and brass fittings.

I don't know about the ticking but I know changing the filter and fluid is the first thing to do when an auto trans has a problem plus cleaning the pan. Another thing is get a automobile sound wand and get under there and see if you can pinpoint the ticking.
