1.Remove the drain plug on the bottom of the transmission case to drain the CVT fluid.
Draining amount: Approximately 5.5 L
2.Install the drain plug with a new gasket to the transmission case, and tighten it to the specified torque.
Tightening torque: 34 ± 2 N·m
caution If the transmission case becomes full before filling 5.5 L of CVT fluid, stop filling the CVT fluid.

Fill in the new CVT fluid through the oil filler tube.
Filling amount: Approximately 5.5 L
4.Start up the engine and let it idle for 1 to 2 minutes.
5.Move the selector lever to every position, and then move it to the P or N range.
6.Stop the engine and perform the above steps 1 to 5 again.
7.Stop the engine, and discharge a small amount of CVT fluid to check for fouling. If fouling is found, repeat steps 1 to 5 until clean CVT fluid comes out.


9.Drive the vehicle until the CVT fluid is warmed up to the normal operating temperature (70 to 80°C), and check the CVT fluid level. It must be within the "HOT" area on the oil level gauge.
note The "COLD" level is for reference only. Use the "HOT" level as the criteria.
note Use M.U.T.-III. to measure the CVT fluid temperature.
note When a certain amount of time is required to warm up the CVT fluid to the normal operating temperature (70 to 80°C), check the oil level referring to the characteristics chart.
10.Adjust the CVT fluid level to the specified level. Refill the CVT fluid when the fluid level is low, and drain the CVT fluid through the drain plug when the fluid level is high.
11.Securely insert the oil level gauge into the oil filler tube.
12.CVT-ECU records the deterioration level of the CVT fluid. After replacing the CVT fluid with new one, use M.U.T.-III to reset the deterioration level recorded in CVT-ECU.
