thanks, ***** ***** me a few min, back shortly

Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

ok, I included another link, You have to remove the fill plug, like a hex head plug as shown, I honestly can not remember each and every size of the hex head, sorry, you remove that plug, then have to have a hand fluid pump with hose, Most all parts stores sell, some rent it, you pump the fluid back in following the repair instructions.You MUST use CVT fluid./It is a special fluid ONLY for the CVT trans, Most parts stores sell it, various brands, have to ask them I think? Valvoline, Kendall and Subaru direct at parts dept. Do not just put in any fluid, Have to ask for the CVT fluid, Store can help direct to that fluid
