Installation
1.
Install in the reverse order of removal
  
When reinstalling
1)
If the differential oil seal is damaged and oil is leaking, replace the oil seal with a new one. When installing a new oil seal, use the special tools (09452-26100, 09231-H1100).
2)
Check the ATF level after refilling the automatic transaxle with fluid.
3)
Clear the diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) using the KDS/GDS. Disconnecting the battery negative terminal will not clear the DTCs. Clear DTCs using the KDS/GDS at all times.
When replacing with a new automatic transaxle
1)
Automatic transaxle is already filled with the specified amount of ATF.
For this reason, it is not necessary to refill and check the ATF. However, the remaining ATF in the ATF cooler has to be drained.
2)
Install the transaxle after draining the remaining ATF by blowing air into the ATF cooler hose.
3)
Clear the diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) using the KDS/GDS. Disconnecting the battery negative terminal will not clear the DTCs. Clear DTCs using the KDS/GDS at all times.
4)
Reset the automatic transaxle adaptive values using the KDS/GDS.

5)
Perform the TCM adaptive values learning procedure.
