Replace the gasket before reinstalling the drain plug.
Loosen the mounting bolts (A) of the valve body cover.
Tightening torque :
11.8 - 13.7 N.m (1.2 - 1.4 kgf.m, 8.7 - 10.1 lb-ft)

9.8 - 11.8 N.m (1.0 - 1.2 kgf·m, 7.2 - 8.7 lb-ft)

Loosen the support bracket mounting bolts (A).
Tightening torque :
9.8 - 11.8 N.m (1.0 - 1.2 kgf·m, 7.2 - 8.7 lb-ft)

Remove the support bracket (A).

Remove the ON/OFF solenoid valve (A).

To install, reverse the removal procedure.
Inject the automatic transaxle oil and inspect the oil level.
(Refer to Automatic Transaxle System - "Automatic Transaxle Fluid")
After ATF level check or exchange, be sure to remove residual ATF on transaxle case.
(Be especially sure to remove residual ATF between automatic transaxle case and valve body cover)
After installing the valve body cover, make sure to check the oil leakage at the connection area with the engine ON.
Clear the diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) using the diagnostic tool.
(Refer to Automatic Transaxle System - "Automatic Transaxle")
Even though disconnecting the battery negative terminal, the DTCs will not be cleared. So, be sure to clear the DTCs using the diagnostic tool.
In order to prevent start delay and gear shift shock during acceleration and start, perform TCM learning after replacing the solenoid valve.
