Because the automatic transaxle is composed of component parts of an especially high degree of precision, these parts should be very carefully handled during disassembly and assembly so as not to scar or scratch them.
A rubber mat should be placed on the workbench, and it should always be kept clean.
During disassembly, cloth gloves or rags should not be used. If such items must be used, use articles made of nylon, or use paper towels.
All disassembled parts must be thoroughly cleaned. Metal parts may be cleaned with ordinary detergents, but must be thoroughly air dried.
Clean the clutch disc, resin thrust plate and rubber parts by using ATF (automatic transaxle fluid), being very careful that dust, dirt, etc. do not adhere. If the transaxle main unit is damaged, also disassemble and clean the cooler system as well.
