2. Install the CVT unit connector (A) to the transaxle case.


2. Install the CVT unit connector (A) to the transaxle case.

CAUTION: Connect the CVT unit connector with the stopper facing up, and then press in until it clicks.

3. Press in the ratio control valve (B) in the (


3. Press in the ratio control valve (B) in the ( fix the linkage in the position shown with the linkage fixing pin) direction, and then
fix the linkage in the position shown with the linkage fixing pin (A) from the back of control valve through the hole for fixing.

4. Check that one end of linkage engages with the step motor end (C) and that the linkage is in the direction shown.

5. Install the control valve to the transaxle case.

CAUTION:


CAUTION: • Never drop the linkage fixing pin. If it is dropped, repeat the installation procedure from step 3.

• Never pinch the harness into between the control valve and the transaxle case.

6. Fix the control valve using the control valve bolts (A) and (B).



7. Pull the linkage fixing pin out.


7. Pull the linkage fixing pin out.

8. Connect the connectors (A) and (B).


CAUTION:


CAUTION: • Never pinch the harness into between the control valve and the transaxle case.

• Securely insert the connector until it clicks and locks.

9. Install the bracket (1).


10. Install the oil strainer assembly (1) using the oil strainer assembly


10. Install the oil strainer assembly (1) using the oil strainer assembly bolts (A) and (B).



CAUTION:


CAUTION: • Never reuse O-ring.

• Apply NISSAN CVT fluid NS-2 when installing the O-ring.

NOTE: Remove the bracket and adjust the position again if the bolt hole positions are not aligned.

11. Install the collar to the manual shaft.

CAUTION: Never drop the collar.

12. Assemble the manual plate (1) while aligning with the groove (A) of the manual valve, and then tighten washer (2) the lock nut (3) to the specified torque.

CAUTION: Assemble the manual plate while aligning its end with the cutout ( ) of the manual valve.



13. Install the snap ring of CVT unit connector, and then connect the


13. Install the snap ring of CVT unit connector, and then connect the CVT unit harness connector.

14. Install the magnet while aligning it with the convex side of oil pan.

CAUTION: Completely eliminate the iron powder from the magnet area of oil pan and the magnet.

15. Install the oil pan gasket to the oil pan.

CAUTION: • Completely wipe out any moisture, oil, and old gasket from the oil pan gasket surface and bolt hole of oil pan and transaxle case.

• Never reuse oil pan gaskets.

16. Install the oil pan assembly to the transaxle case with the following procedure.

1. Install the oil pan assembly to the transaxle case, and then temporarily tighten the oil pan bolt.

CAUTION: Never reuse oil pan bolts.

2. Tighten the oil pan bolts in the order shown to the specified torque.

3. Tighten the oil pan bolts again clockwise from (1) shown to the specified torque.

17. Fill CVT fluid from CVT fluid charging pipe to the specified level.


CAUTION:


CAUTION: • Use only Genuine NISSAN CVT Fluid NS-2. Never mix with other fluid.

• Using CVT fluid other than Genuine NISSAN CVT Fluid NS-2 will deteriorate in driveability and CVT durability, and may damage the CVT, which is not covered by the warranty.

• When filling CVT fluid, take care not to scatter heat generating parts such as exhaust.

• Sufficiently shake the container of CVT fluid before using.

• Delete CVT fluid deterioration date with CONSULT-III after changing CVT fluid. Refer to TMxx," CONSULT-III Function (TRANSMISSION)".

18. With the engine warmed up, drive the vehicle in an urban area.

NOTE: When ambient temperature is 20В°C (68В°F), it takes about 10 minutes for the CVT fluid to warm up to 50В° to 80В°C (122В° to 176В°F).

19. Check CVT fluid level and condition. Refer to TM-416, "Inspection".

20. Connect negative battery terminal. Refer to PG-68, "Removal and Installation" (coupe), PG-139, "Removal and Installation" (sedan).

Inspection and Adjustment

INSPECTION AFTER REMOVAL

Check oil pan for foreign material.

• If a large amount of worn material is found, clutch plate may be worn.

• If iron powder is found, bearings, gears, or clutch plates may be worn.

• If aluminum powder is found, bushing may be worn, or chips or burrs of aluminum casting parts may enter.

Check points where wear is found in all cases.

INSPECTION AFTER REMOVAL

Check the CVT fluid level and leakage. Refer to TM-416, "Inspection".

INSPECTION AFTER INSTALLATION

Erase the TCM data.

• Erase the CVT fluid degradation level data using CONSULT-III. Refer to TM-298, "CONSULT-III Function (TRANSMISSION)".

• Erase the memory of ROM using CONSULT-III. Refer to TM-298, "CONSULT-III Function (TRANSMISSION)".
