Removal and Installation
WARNING: Do not remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Serious burns could occur from high pressure engine coolant escaping from the radiator. Wrap a thick cloth around the cap. Slowly turn it a quarter turn to allow built-up pressure to escape. Carefully remove the cap by turning it all the way.
- Perform when the engine is cold.
- When replacing the TCM and transaxle assembly as a set, replace the transaxle assembly first and then replace the TCM. Refer to TM-82, "Description".
NOTE: When removing components such as hoses, tubes/lines, etc., cap or plug openings to prevent fluid from spilling.
- Remove engine and transaxle assembly. Refer to EM-81, "Removal and Installation (FWD)" (FWD) or EM-85, "Removal and Installation (AWD)" (AWD).
- Remove the CVT water hoses from engine side. Refer to TM-212, "Removal and Installation".
- Remove the transaxle to engine and engine to transaxle bolts.
- Separate the engine from the transaxle and remove the engine from the front suspension member. Refer to EM-81, "Removal and Installation (FWD)" (FWD) or EM-85, "Removal and Installation (AWD)" (AWD).
NOTE: Using paint, put matching marks on the drive plate and torque converter when removing the torque converter to drive plate nuts.
- Remove following parts from transaxle assembly (if necessary).
- Control cable bracket (Refer to TM-197, "Exploded View".)

- Do not reuse O-rings or copper sealing washers.
- When turning crankshaft, turn it clockwise as viewed from the front of the engine.
- When tightening the nuts for the torque converter while securing the crankshaft pulley bolt, be sure to confirm the tightening torque of the crankshaft pulley bolt. Refer to EM-45, "Removal and Installation".
- After converter is installed to drive plate, rotate crankshaft several turns to check that CVT rotates freely without binding.
- When installing the CVT to the engine, align the matching mark on the drive plate with the matching mark on the torque converter.
- When installing the drive plate to torque converter nuts, tighten them temporarily. then tighten the nuts to the specified torque.
- Install the transaxle assembly and engine assembly mounting bolts according to the following standards.
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-226, "Torque Converter".
INSPECTION AFTER INSTALLATION
Check the following items:
- CVT fluid leakage, refer to TM-190, "Inspection".
- For CVT position, refer to TM-196, "Inspection".
- Start the engine and check for coolant leakage from the parts which are removed and reinstalled.
ADJUSTMENT AFTER INSTALLATION
- Adjust the CVT fluid level. Refer to TM-192, "Adjustment".
- Perform "ADDITIONAL SERVICE WHEN REPLACE TRANSAXLE ASSEMBLY". Refer to TM-84, "Description".
