Matters that require attention when installing the dual clutch transmission assembly

1)

Check the pilot bearing (B) and motor side connector (A) on the side of engine for any dents, damages and deformations before installing the DCT.

2)

Align the motor side connector spline (A) with the dual clutch spline (B).

3)

Insert the input shaft (A) into the pilot bearing (B) and then assemble the DCT to the bushing on the motor side.

4)

After mounting the DCT to the engine by pushing the DCT, tighten the mounting bolts making sure that there is no gap (less than 2 mm) between the clutch housing and the engine block.

(If the bolt is tightened while there is a gap, then the spline of motor side connector or clutch will be damaged or broken.)

2.

Observe each separate procedure below for reinstallation or replacement with a new dual clutch transmission.

  

When reinstalling

1)

If the differential oil seal is damaged and oil is leaking, replace the oil seal with a new one. When installing a new oil seal, use the special tool (09430-C1190, 09231-H1100).

2)

Clear the diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) using the KDS/GDS. Disconnecting the battery negative terminal will not clear the DTCs. Clear the DTCs using the KDS/GDS at all times.

3)

After installing the DCT, check the oil level after refilling the DCT with oil.

(Refer to DCT System - "Transmission Gear Oil")

4)

Refill the hybrid motor cooling system with coolant and then perform the air bleeding using the KDS/GDS.

(Refer to Hybrid Motor System - "Coolant")

5)

Refill the engine clutch reservoir with brake fluid and then perform the air bleeding using the KDS/GDS.

6)

Perform the engine clutch / motor resolver adaptation using the KDS/GDS.

When replacing with a new dual clutch transmission

1)

After replacing the new DCT, it need not oil refill & level check procedure because oil is already filled with specified capacity inside new DCT.

2)

Clear the diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) using the KDS/GDS. Disconnecting the battery negative terminal will not clear the DTCs. Clear the DTCs using the KDS/GDS at all times.

3)

Refill the hybrid motor cooling system with coolant and then perform the air bleeding using the KDS/GDS.

(Refer to Hybrid Motor System - "Coolant")

4)

Perform initialization of the engine clutch inspection line learning and diagnostic information using the GDS.

5)

Refill the engine clutch reservoir with brake fluid and then perform the air bleeding using the KDS/GDS.

6)

Perform the engine clutch / motor resolver adaptation using the KDS/GDS.

7)

Perform of the stabilization of the engine clutch hardware transfer torque using the GDS.

8)

Perform clutch characteristics input procedure using the KDS/GDS. (One of two procedures must be performed.)

• Clutch characteristics input (Manual Teaching)

• Clutch touch point learning
