    Try calling a wrecking yard, they would have that information at hand.

    I live in Honduras, Central America. Here is not easy to find parts and technitians who know how to fix automatic transmitions. My problem is that the reverse does not work. I always have to push the car when I need to go back. One technitian tell me to change the sensors inside the body valve. He wants to sell this sensors in US$ 300 plus labor and the cost of the hole KIA Automatic Transmition 2004 I found is US$ 400 plus labor. That KIA 2004 had a bad accident in the back but the front is perfect so they sell the car in parts.
