Visual inspection

A thorough visual inspection of the transaxle is necessary for successful diagnosis.

A visual inspection is made of the following components:

  • Connectors and plug connections
  • Ease of operation of the selector lever
  • Selector lever position and selector lever position display
  • Fluid leakage
  • Transmission fluid level check
  • Transmission fluid quality check
  • Modification/retrofitting
  • Mechanical damage to the transmission

When inspecting connectors, remember that the plugs may only be disconnected when they are not energized.

The transaxle electronics may be destroyed by static charge. To prevent damage, it must be ensured that the technician complies with the corresponding safeguards.

NOTE: Refer to the service literature for an exact description of these safeguards.
