Removal and Intallation

REMOVAL

WARNING:
Never remove the reservoir tank cap when the engine is hot. Serious burns could occur from highpressure engine coolant escaping from the reservoir tank.

CAUTION:
Perform this step engine is cold.

When replacing TCM and transaxle assembly as a set, replace transaxle assembly first and then replace TCM. Refer to TM-180, "Description".

NOTE:

Cap or cover any transaxle openings to prevent transaxle fluid from spiling.

INSTALLATION

Note following, and install in the reverse order of removal.

CAUTION:
Check fitting of dowel pin (when installing transaxle )
when installing transaxle assembly to engine assembly.

 When installing transaxle assembly to the engine assembly,


When installing transaxle assembly to the engine assembly, attach the fixing bolts in accordance with the following.


 Set and screw in the drive plate location guide (commercial service


Set and screw in the drive plate location guide (commercial service tool: 31197CA000) (A) onto the stud bolts for the torque converter locate.

 When not using drive plate location guide, rotate torque converter


When not using drive plate location guide, rotate torque converter so that the stud bolt (A) for mounting the drive plate location guide of torque converter aligns with the mounting position of starter motor.

 Rotate crankshaft so that the hole (A) for inserting drive plate location


Rotate crankshaft so that the hole (A) for inserting drive plate location guide of drive plate aligns with the mounting position (B) of starter motor.

NOTE

:
When not using drive plate location guide, insert stud bolt of torque converter into the hole of drive plate, aligning the drive plate hole position and torque converter.

CAUTION

:
Note that the stud bolt strikes the drive plate hole position is not aligned the torque converter stud bolt.

 Align the position of tightening nuts (


Align the position of tightening nuts () for drive plate with those
) for drive plate with those of the torque converter, and temporarily tighten the nuts. Then, tighten the bolts with the specified torque.

:51 Nm (5.2 kg-m,38 ft-lb)

CAUTION:
When turning crankshaft, turn it clockwise as viewed from the front of the engine.

When tightening the tightening nuts for the torque converter after fixing the crankshaft pulley bolts, confirm the tightening torque of the crankshaft pulley mounting bolts. Refer to .

After converter is installed to drive plate, rotate crankshaft several turns and check that transaxle rotates freely without binding.

Inspection and Adjustment


Inspection and Adjustment

INSPECTION BEFORE INSTALLATION

After inserting a torque converter to the CVT, check dimension (A) with in the reference value limit.

B : Scale
C : Straightedge

Dimension (A) : Refer to TM-308, "Torque Converter".

INSPECTION AFTER INSTALLATION


INSPECTION AFTER INSTALLATION

Check the following.

Check for CVT fluid leakage and check CVT fluid level. Refer to TM-184, "Inspection".

Check CVT position. Refer to TM-194, "Inspection and Adjustment".

Start and warm up the engine. Visually check that there is no leakage of engine coolant and CVT fluid.

ADJUSTMENT AFTER INSTALLATION

When replacing the transaxle assembly, Erase CVT fluid degradation level data. Refer to TM-159, "CONSULT-III Function (TRANSMISSION)".

Erase EEP ROM in TCM. Refer to TM-180, "Description".
