  1. Install the torque converter (A) on the mainshaft (B) with the new O-ring (C).
  1. Install the 14 mm dowel pins (D) in the torque converter housing.
  1. Place the transmission on the jack, and raise the transmission to the engine level.

  1. Attach the transmission to the engine, and install the lower transmission housing mounting bolts.

  1. Install the rear transmission housing mounting bolt.

  1. Install the front and upper transmission housing mounting bolts.

  1. Place a jack under the transmission, raise it and secure the transmission mount and mount bracket (A) on the body and transmission housing with the new mounting bolts and new nuts loose.
  1. Tighten the transmission mount bolts to the specified torque in the following order; on the middle (B), on the front (C), and on the rear (D).
  1. Remove the jack, and tighten the bolt (E) and nuts (F) on the transmission mount bracket to the specified torque.
  1. Install the transmission ground cable terminal (G).

  1. Install the new set ring (A) on the intermediate shaft (B).
  1. Clean the areas where the intermediate shaft contacts the transmission (differential) with solvent, and dry with compressed air. Apply ATF to the intermediate shaft splines, put the heat shield (C) on the intermediate shaft, then install the intermediate shaft; be sure not to allow dust or other foreign particles to enter the transmission.
  1. Secure the heat shield with the mounting bolts.

  1. Install the new set ring (A) on the left driveshaft (B).
  1. Clean the areas where the left driveshaft contacts the transmission (differential) with solvent, and dry with compressed air. Then install the left driveshaft; be sure not to allow dust or other foreign particles to enter the transmission. Turn the steering knuckle fully outward, and slide the driveshaft into the differential until you feel its set ring fully engage the side gear.
  1. Apply right driveshaft inboard-joint splines with the recommended grease.
  1. Slide the right driveshaft over the intermediate shaft splines until you feel the driveshaft fully engage the intermediate shaft set ring.

  1. Attach the torque converter to the drive plate with eight bolts (A). Rotate the crankshaft pulley as necessary to tighten the bolts to 1/2 of the specified torque, then to the final torque, in a crisscross pattern. After tightening the last bolt, check that the crankshaft rotate freely.
  1. Install the torque converter cover (B).

  1. Install the shift cable holder bracket (A) and lower torque rod mounting bracket (B) on the transmission.

  1. Install the control lever (A) over the control shaft (B). Do not twist the boot (C).
  1. Secure the shift cable bracket (D) with the bolts.
  1. Secure the control lever with the new lock washer (E) and the lock bolt (F); install the flange (G) of the lock washer with facing to transmission housing, then bend the lock tab (H) of the lock washer against the bolt head securely.

  1. Install the shift cable cover.

  1. Support the front subframe with a wood piece and a jack.

  1. Lift the front subframe (A) up to body, and secure it with the new mounting bolts loose.
  1. Tighten the right middle mounting bolt (B) first, then the left middle bolt (C), and the four remaining bolts (D) to the specified torque.

  1. Place a jack under the transmission, raise it and attach the lower torque rod (A) in the mounting bracket and front subframe.
  1. Install the new mounting bolt (B), and set the bolt tongue (C) into the stop (D) through the guide (E), then loosely install the new nut (F).
  1. Loosely install the new mounting bolt (G).
  1. Remove the jack, and tighten the bolt and nut to the specified torque.

  1. On the right side of the steering gearbox, secure the steering gear box (A) and stiffener (B) with the new mounting bolt (C) and the new bolt (D) loose.

  1. On the left side of the steering gearbox, secure the steering gear box (A) and stiffener (B) with the new mounting bolt (C) and the new bolt (D) loose.

  1. Loosely install the steering gearbox mounting bolt (A) and washer (B) on the middle.
  1. Tighten the steering gearbox mounting bolts to the specified torque in the following order; on the right side, on the left side, and on the middle.
  1. Tighten the bolts to the specified torque securing the right side stiffener, then left side stiffener.

  1. Connect the ball joints (A) to both knuckles (B), and install the new ball joint nuts (C). Tighten the nuts, then secure the nuts with the lock pin (D).
  1. Connect the stabilizer links (E) to the stabilizer ends (F), and install the nuts (G). Insert a 5 mm Allen wrench (H) in the top of the ball joint pins (I), and tighten the nuts.
  1. With HID lamp model: If the left side lower arm was removed, connect the suspension stroke sensor, to the lower arm.
  1. Remove the engine support hanger, and install the harness clamp in its bracket located in front of the left damper top.

  1. Remove the hanger plate (07MAK-PY30100) (A) and bolt (B).

  1. Install the air cleaner housing mounting bracket on the transmission hanger.

  1. Secure the harness clamp bracket (A) with the bolt.
  1. Connect the shift solenoid harness connector (B) and 3rd clutch transmission fluid pressure switch connector (C), and install the harness clamps (D) in the clamp brackets (E).


  1. Connect the input shaft (mainshaft) speed sensor connector (A) and 2nd clutch transmission fluid pressure switch connector (B).

  1. Connect the output shaft (countershaft) speed sensor connector (A), and install the harness clamp (B) on its bracket (C).
  1. Connect the transmission range switch connector (D).

  1. Install the harness cover (A) on its bracket (B), and secure the cover with the bolt.
