View Full Version : 2002 Honda Accord 4cyl Transaxle Installation

When re-installing transaxle, the Haynes Repair manual states to match the alignment marks made on the torque converter to the drive plate. However, it does not provide any guidance on installing a remanufactured transmission with a new torque converter.

What would be the proper procedure for handling this situation?

Thanks in advance

The marks made during disassembly are to maintain balance. But since you are installing a new unit, that doesn't apply (it can't). I think it'll be ok when you install it. Hondas are great machines - cars and bikes!

Excellent, that's the idea I inferred from the repair manual.

Thank you for the timely and direct response.
