SERVICE PROCEDURE

Parking Pawl Pin Removal

IMPORTANT: The original Parking Pawl Pin may be difficult to remove and/or the new Parking Pawl Pin may be difficult to install if the Transmission temperature is below 20°C (68°F). If the Transmission temperature is at or below 20°C (68°F), start and idle the engine for 10 minutes before starting repairs.

WARNING

To avoid the risk of death or serious personal injury:

  • Use caution when performing repairs near Transmission and Exhaust components as they will be hot just after the Engine stops.
  • Do not spill A/T fluid on heat generating parts.

 

NOTICE

To avoid the risk of damage to the Transmission:

  • Do not reuse gaskets.
  • Use only recommended A/T fluid and do not mix with other A/T fluid.
  • Do not use A/T fluid other than the recommended as this will cause deterioration in drivability and A/T durability, and may damage the Transmission which is not covered by the Nissan new vehicle limited warranty.
