I'm sure someone who has a C6 will chime in here, but do you have a Haynes manual? If not, I'd go out an get one, it describes that process for the C6 in detail..

You can do this with a screwdriver like me or the book says to use a guage rod or something. You can get to it on the drivers side of the tranny. Here is a pic of it installed..."

yw,
Also can you check the connector for color codes on it?
and confirm colors; and snap a few pics of the NSS and connector if you can; here is the other NSS C6 thread http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/showthread.php?t=173356
