Just intimidating the public Im afraid. The bastards. Actually torqueing the OF to their spec will prolly result in it being nearly impossible to remove IME.
This method worked for the '08 YARIS 3 door w/ 5 speed manual . The permanent marker remained for a while . If I remember correctly , reused the washer from the factory . Would get a new one when doing a second change of gear oil .

great DIY

Excellent DIY! Just be advised, when you are filling using the vinyl tube with the funnel the oil runs very slow so be patient!

Also, you must use a 24 mm socket, there is some metal on the way when you try to remove the drain bolt. I tried with a wrench it just did not work!

excellent pics to help locate plugs.

drain plug parallel to the drivers tire!

fill plug parallel to the front bumper!

A suggestion to all owners, but specifically while doing this job:

Make sure your vent is clear as well. The transmission has a vent on it to allow for the expansion of the oil/air inside. Otherwise the seals have to deal with the pressure and will eventually fail. These vents often clog, and mine was plugged when I got the car with 38000km on it. A good indicator it is plugged is you will hear a hiss of air as you open the fill plug.

I can't recall exactly where the vent is on these cars. iirc it's just behind the shifter. A little white(?) plastic knob that you twist and wiggle a little to free up any junk.

I'll try to find a picture.

Cheers.

Hey this is a great diy but I'm having difficulty finding the fill plug is it on the bottom front by the airbox or on the side?

You using a torque wrench ? May want to mark one plug as F.P. ( filler plug ) .

i didn't notice this thread until I already did the job, and apparently I over-torqued the nuts. i was assuming they were crush washers like on my honda. is this a problem?

also, my oil was very dirty at 26k.

Great DIY and I just want to give a few notes for anyone tackling this in the future.

- I didn't do this on my car until 75k. The fluid came looking brand new with no metal shavings. However, I was having some issues with the shifter being stubborn in cold weather, especially reverse. After the fluid change, the tranny shifts better than it did stock (as far as I remember)

- A lot of people are recommending Redline, Royal Purple and other exotic oils...you don't really need that stuff. I used Pennzoil Syncromesh out of Autozone for like $8 a quart and it like I said, it shifts better than it did brand new. For reference, here's what it looks like: http://pennzoil.com/other-car-produc...mission-fluid/

- The 24mm socket size for the fill plug was impossible to find in 1/4 inch. I ended up buying a 1/2 to 1/4 adapter to do the job.

- Buy whatever you need so you can do the fill from the top. I used a hand-actuated vacuum pump that I used to bleed brakes and it was a major PITA to do under the car. I did my best to put all 2qts in, but really as long as you can stick your finger in the fill hole (lol) and feel fluid, you've got enough in there.

Where is the reverse sensor plug located, seems like a less messy way than filling from the bottom? Can someone take a picture

Just want to give a thank-you for the DIY. Made the job simple for me, faster than changing the oil.

I'm also interested curious about the reverse sensor fill method if anyone has a reference image?
