Brake band adjustment - Legacy and SVX models
The following procedure describes access to the 4EAT transmission brake band adjustment on FWD and 4WD models.
1. Disconnect the ground cable from the battery.
2. Disconnect the pitch stopper from the engine.
3. Raise the vehicle on a lift.
4. Separate the "Y" pipe or the turbo outlet pipe from the center pipe.
5. Support the transmission, remove the rear crossmember to body mounting bolts and lower the rear of the transmission completely.
6. Remove the shift selector cable clamp from the transmission.
7. Using a wood block cut exactly to 13 3/8 inches long, move the rear of the transmission toward the right side of the vehicle and hold it in position while inserting the block of wood between the left frame rail and the rear "Y" pipe flange. On turbo models, insert the block of wood between the outlet pipe heat shield bolt located just before the outlet pipe flange and the left frame rail.
Caution: Ensure the block of wood is properly secure between the "Y" pipe flange and frame rail before proceeding with adjustment.
8. Access the brake band adjusting nut and screw from the rear of the transmission between the transmission and vehicle body tunnel.
Perform the brake band adjustment.
Subaru SVX models:
Disconnect the ground cable from the battery.
Remove the starter.
Disconnect the pitch stopper from the engine.
Raise the vehicle on a lift.
Remove the left front exhaust pipe, between the left exhaust manifold and rear catalytic converter.
Disconnect the exhaust system center heat shield which is bolted to both the underside of the vehicle body and the rear transmission crossmember. Slide the heat shield toward the rear of the vehicle.
Support the transmission, remove the rear crossmember to body mounting bolts and lower the rear of the transmission completely.
Lower the vehicle on the lift to gain access to the brake band adjustment screw from under the hood.
Use special tool p/n SOA625334, 3/8" to 1/2" adaptor, appropriate length 3/8" extension so as to allow clearance below the A/C low pressure line located near the fire wall.
Loosen the locknut and turn the adjusting screw clockwise until resistance is felt. Torque the adjusting screw to the specifications listed for the torque wrench effective length. Next loosen the adjusting screw (counterclockwise) three turns and retighten the locknut.
Note: You must determine the torque wrench effective length by measuring the distance from the center of the square drive to the center of the handle grip. This measurement must be used to select the proper torque specification from the torque specification chart above.
