|1.||Apply the parking brake, and block both rear wheels. Raise the front of the vehicle, and make sure it is securely supported. Or lift the vehicle up on a hoist.|
|2.||Shift the N position.|
|3.||Remove the transmission range switch cover.|
|4.||Remove the transmission range switch.|
|5.||Make sure the control shaft is in the N position. If necessary, move the shift lever to the N position.|
NOTE: Do not use the selector control shaft to adjust the shift position. If the control shaft tips are squeezed together it will cause a faulty signal or position due to play between the selector control shaft and switch.
|6.||Align the cutouts (A) on the rotary-frame with the neutral positioning cutouts (B) on the transmission range switch (C), then put a 2.0 mm (0.08 in.) feeler gauge blade (D) in the cutouts to hold the switch in the N position.|
NOTE: Be sure to use a 2.0 mm (0.08 in.) blade or equivalent to hold the switch in the N position.
|7.||Install the transmission range switch (A) gently on the selector control shaft (B) while holding it in the N position with the 2.0 mm (0.08 in.) blade (C).|
|8.||Tighten the bolts on the transmission range switch while you continue to hold the N position. Do not move the transmission range switch when tightening the bolts. Remove the feeler gauge.|
|9.||Check the connectors for rust, dirt, or oil, clean or repair if necessary, then connect the connector securely.|
|10.||Turn the ignition switch ON (II). Move the shift lever through all positions, and check the transmission range switch synchronization with the A/T gear position indicator.|
|11.||Check that the engine will start in the P and N positions, and will not start in any other shift lever position.|
|12.||Check that the back-up lights come on when the shift lever is in the R position.|
|13.||Allow the front wheels to rotate freely, then start the engine, and check the shift lever operation.|
|14.||Install the transmission range switch cover.|
