Installation

Installation

1. Installation is the reverse of removal

CAUTION

If the oil seal on the transaxle case side is damaged and fluid is leaking, replace the oil seal with a new unit. When installing the new oil seal, use the specialized tool (oil seal installer, 09453-3L240).

NOTE

After replacement or reinstallation procedure of the automatic transaxle assembly, must perform procedures below.

  • Power steering fluid replacement and air bleeding. (Refer to "General information" in ST group)
  • Adding automatic transaxle fluid. (Refer to "Hydraulic system (Fluid)" in this group)
  • After servicing the automatic transaxle or TCM, clear' the diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) using the GDS tool.

    Diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) cannot be cleared by disconnecting the battery.

  • When replacing the automatic transaxle and TCM, reset the diagnostic trouble code by using GDS.
  • When deleting diagnostic trouble code, use the GDS as possible.
  • When replacing the automatic transaxle, reset the automatic transaxle's values by using the GDS.
  • Perform TCM learning after replacing the transaxle to prevent slow transaxle response, jerky acceleration and jerky startup. (Refer to "Automatic transaxle control system (Repair procedures)" in this group).

NOTE

  • When replacing the automatic transaxle, reset the automatic transaxle's values by using the GDS.[Condition]
