-3 Secure the control pin with the spring clip (G). Do not bend the shift cable excessively.
-4 Secure the shift cable bracket (H) with the bolts, and install the shift cable cover (I), but do not tighten the bolts.
-5 Tighten the front bolt (J) on the cover first, then the lower bolt (K), and lastly the middle bolt (L).

 

25.2WD model: Install the shift cable.

-1 Attach the shift cable end (A) to the control lever (B), then insert the control pin (C) into the control lever hole through the shift cable end, and secure the control pin with the spring clip (D). Do not bend the shift cable excessively.
-2 Secure the shift cable bracket (E) with the bolt, and install the shift cable cover (F), but do not tighten the bolts.
-3 Tighten the front bolt (G) on the cover first, then the lower bolt (H), and lastly the middle bolt (I).

 

26.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 rotates freely.

 

27.Install the torque converter cover (B).

28.Connect the ball joints (A) to the lower arms (B), and install the castle nuts (C) and spring clips (D).
Install the spring clips from the inside of the vehicle, with their hooked sides facing the front (E) of the vehicle in the direction shown.

 

29.Connect the ball joints (F) to the lower arms, and install the nuts (G). Insert a 5 mm hex wrench (H) in the top of the ball joint pins, and tighten the nuts.

30.Remove the engine support hanger.

31.Connect the ATF cooler hoses (A) to the ATF cooler lines (B), and secure the hoses with the clips (C).

 

32.Connect the shift solenoid harness connector (A), A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve B connector, and solenoid valve C connector. Install the harness clamps (D) on the clamp brackets (E).
