REMOVAL SERVICE POINTS



<<A>> CVT ASSEMBLY CONNECTOR DISCONNECTION



While pressing A in the figure, turn B anti-clockwise to unlock the CVT assembly connector, and disconnect the connector.

<<B>> TRANSMISSION ASSEMBLY UPPER PART COUPLING BOLT REMOVAL


Only loosen the bolts from the engine and transmission assembly (do not remove).

<<C>> TORQUE CONVERTER AND DRIVE PLATE COUPLING BOLT REMOVAL


1.Remove the coupling bolts while turning the crankshaft.
2.Fully push the torque converter into the transmission side so that it does not remain on the engine side.

<<D>> INJECTOR PROTECTOR MOUNTING BOLT REMOVAL



Remove the injector protector mounting bolt (A shown in the illustration).

<<E>> ENGINE ASSEMBLY HOLDING



1.Tighten the engine hanger plate (special tool: MB992853) to the specified torque at A in the figure (injector protector rear mounting bolt) and B in the figure (vacuum pipe assembly mounting bolt).
Tightening torque: 20 ± 2 N·m (A in the figure)
Tightening torque: 11 ± 1 N·m (B in the figure)

2.Assemble the engine hanger (special tool: MB991527) with the chain of the engine hanger balancer (special tool: MB991454).


3.<When engine hanger (Special tool: MB991928) is used>
(1) Assemble the engine hanger (Special tool: MB991928). (Set the components below to the base hanger.)

  • Slide bracket (HI)
  • Foot x 4 (standard) (MB991932)
(2) Set the feet of the special tool as shown in the figure.
note Adjust the engine hanger balance by sliding the slide bracket (HI).
(3) Connect the engine hanger (Special tool: MB991928) to the engine hanger (special tool: MB991527).Remove the garage jack and then remove the transmission assembly upper part coupling bolts that have been loosened previously.


4.<When engine hanger (Special tool: MB991895) and engine hanger attachment (Special tool: MB992906) are used>
(1) Set the foot of special tool engine hanger (MB991895) as shown in the figure.
note Slide the front foot of special tool engine hanger attachment (Special tool: MB992906) to balance the engine hanger.
(2) Connect the engine hanger (Special tool: MB991895) to the engine hanger (special tool: MB991527).Remove the garage jack and then remove the transmission assembly upper part coupling bolts that have been loosened previously.

INSTALLATION SERVICE POINTS



>>A<< TRANSMISSION ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION



Fully push the torque converter into the transmission side, and then assemble the transmission assembly to the engine.

>>B<< INJECTOR PROTECTOR MOUNTING BOLT INSTALLATION



Tighten the injector protector mounting bolt (A in the figure) to the specified torque.
Tightening torque: 20 ± 2 N·m

>>C<< TRANSMISSION CONTROL CABLE (TRANSMISSION SIDE) INSTALLATION


1.Move the selector lever to the "N" range.
2.Move the manual control lever to Neutral position.

3.Align the hole at the end of the manual control lever and the hole in the inhibitor switch body flange (section A - A).
note Insert a Φ5 mm bar into the aligned holes in the inhibitor switch body flange and on the tip of the manual control lever to position the inhibitor switch body.

4.Use the adjusting nut to tighten the transmission control cable to the specified torque.
Tightening torque: 9.5 ± 3.5 N·m
