PROCEDURE

  1. 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°).

    4. C295552

      Remove the refill plug and gasket from the continuously variable transaxle assembly. [*2]

    5. C296766

      Using a 10 mm hexagon socket wrench, remove the drain plug and gasket from the transaxle oil (CVT) pan sub-assembly. [*3]

    6. C296777

      Measure the amount of fluid drained. [*4]

      Tip:

      Add the same amount of fluid in step [*6].

    7. C296766

      Using a 10 mm hexagon socket wrench, temporarily install the gasket and drain plug to the transaxle oil (CVT) pan sub-assembly. [*5]

      Tip:

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

    8. C295556

      Add fluid to the refill hole using the same amount of fluid drained in step [*4]. [*6]

      Note:

      Use Toyota Genuine CVT fluid FE.

    9. C295552

      Temporarily install the gasket and refill plug to the continuously variable transaxle assembly. [*7]

      Tip:

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

    10. Lower the vehicle. [*8]

    11. Start the engine. [*9]

    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). [*10]

      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. [*11]

    14. Turn the ignition switch off. [*12]

    15. Repeat steps [*1] to [*12].
