7.
Remove the main harness module (A) after removing the bolts.
Tightening torque:
9.8 - 11.8 N·m (1.0 - 1.2 kgf·m, 7.2 - 8.7 lb·ft)

8.
Remove solenoid valve support bracket (A) after loosening the bolts.
Tightening torque:
9.8 - 11.8 N·m (1.0 - 1.2 kgf·m, 7.2 - 8.7 lb·ft)

9.

Installation
1.
Install in the reverse order of removal.
  
The existing valve body cover gasket (A) must be replaced with a new one. (Do not reuse it.)

When installing, apply the ATF oil or petroleum jelly to the O-rings (A) to prevent damage.

2.
Perform the procedures below after installing.
(1)
Refill the automatic transaxle with fluid.
(Refer to Hydraulic System - "Fluid")
(2)
Clear the diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) using the KDS/GDS. Disconnecting the battery negative terminal will not clear the DTCs. Clear DTCs using the KDS/GDS at all times.
(3)
Reset the automatic transaxle adaptive values using the KDS/GDS.

(4)
Perform the TCM adaptive values learning procedure.
(Refer to Automatic Transaxle Control System - "Adjustment")
(5)
After installing, check for leakage of coolant or fluid from hose connection during engine start.
