CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSAXLE FLUID REPLACEMENT

PROCEDURE

  1. REMOVE NO. 1 ENGINE UNDER COVER (for Metal Type)

  2. REMOVE REAR ENGINE UNDER COVER LH (for 1ZR-FAE)

  3. REMOVE REAR ENGINE UNDER COVER LH (for 8NR-FTS)

  4. REPLACE CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSAXLE FLUID

    1. Lift the vehicle. [*1]

      Note:

      Set the vehicle on a lift so that the vehicle is kept level when it is lifted up (make sure that the tilt angle from the front to rear of the vehicle is within +/- 1°).

    2. C327178

      Remove the refill plug and gasket from the rear transaxle case. [*2]

    3. C327179

      Using a 6 mm hexagon socket wrench, remove the overflow plug and gasket from the transaxle oil (CVT) pan sub-assembly. [*3]

    4. C327180C01

      *1

      No. 1 Transmission Oil Filler Tube

      Using a 6 mm hexagon socket wrench, remove the No. 1 transmission oil filler tube from the transaxle oil (CVT) pan sub-assembly and drain the fluid. [*4]

    5. C327181

      Measure the amount of fluid drained. [*5]

      Tip:

      Add the same amount of fluid in step [*8].

    6. C327180C01

      *1

      No. 1 Transmission Oil Filler Tube

      Using a 6 mm hexagon socket wrench, install the No. 1 transmission oil filler tube to the transaxle oil (CVT) pan sub-assembly. [*6]

      1.7 N*m

      17 kgf*cm

      15 in.*lbf

    7. C327179

      Using a 6 mm hexagon socket wrench, temporarily install the gasket and overflow plug to the transaxle oil (CVT) pan sub-assembly. [*7]

      Tip:

      Reuse the old gasket as the overflow plug will be removed again when flushing the fluid.

    8. C327182

      Add fluid to the refill hole using the same amount of fluid drained in step [*5]. [*8]

      Note:

      Use Toyota Genuine CVT Fluid FE.

    9. C327178

      Temporarily install the gasket and refill plug to the rear transaxle case. [*9]

      Tip:

      Reuse the old gasket as the refill plug will be removed again when flushing the fluid.

    10. Lower the vehicle. [*10]

    11. Start the engine. [*11]

    12. Slowly move the shift lever from P to D, and then back to P (keep the shift lever in each position for approximately 3 seconds). [*12]

      Tip:

      Slowly move the shift lever to circulate the fluid through each part of the continuously variable transaxle assembly.

    13. Allow the engine assembly to idle for 30 seconds to warm it up. [*13]

    14. Turn the ignition switch off. [*14]

    15. Repeat steps [*1] to [*14].

    16. Repeat steps [*1] to [*10].

  5. ADD SPECIFIED AMOUNT OF FLUID

  6. AIR BLEED OIL PUMP WITH MOTOR ASSEMBLY (for 8NR-FTS)

  7. ADJUST FLUID TEMPERATURE (when Using the GTS)

  8. ADJUST FLUID TEMPERATURE (when Not Using the GTS)

  9. ADJUST FLUID LEVEL

  10. REBUILD WORK

  11. INSTALL REAR ENGINE UNDER COVER LH (for 1ZR-FAE)

  12. INSTALL REAR ENGINE UNDER COVER LH (for 8NR-FTS)

  13. INSTALL NO. 1 ENGINE UNDER COVER (for Metal Type)
