Installation


Installation
1.
Install in the reverse order of removal.
   
   
When installing, apply the ATF oil or white vaseline to the O-ring (A) to prevent damage during installation.


Do not reuse the drain plug gasket and the valve body cover gasket, oil cooler tube washer.
Be careful not to damage the hose when tightening the clamp.
Install the clamp in the specified direction to prevent interference with surrounding components.
Perform the procedures below after install.
1)
Refill the automatic transaxle with fluid.
(Refer to Hydraulic System - "Fluid")
2)
Refill the engine & transaxle cooling system with coolant.
(Refer to Engine Mechanical System - "Coolant")
3)
Refill the hybrid motor cooling system with coolant and then perform the air bleeding using the GDS.
(Refer to Hybrid Motor System - "Coolant")
4)
Perform the TCM adaptive values learning procedure.
(Refer to Automatic Transaxle Control System - "Repair procedures")
5)
Confirm the coolant leak or fluid leak from the hose connections part in state of engine start.
