    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. B00451O

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

      *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. B0042XW

      Measure the amount of fluid drained. [*5]

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

    6. B0042CYC01
      *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]

      Torque:
      1.7 N*m  { 17 kgf*cm, 15 in.*lbf }
    7. B0044N1

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

      Tech Tips

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

    8. B0041X5

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