That was a cool video thanks for posting it. If not for the dang computer learning procedure it would be a simple (but messy) DIY replacement. I noticed the vehicle had almost 155,000 miles on it, gotta wonder if this is the first valve body replacement for that vehicle considering the lower mileage other are reporting needing the same part replaced.
I would love to have the guy in the video as my mechanic, and wish we could trust all Subaru tech to be so thorough.
The computer/program for the CVT fill temp and relearn after the procedure is really the only expensive and special tool, right? Or did I miss something? I guess the car had to be safely suspended with wheels free during the relearn, that would make it tricky.
I was just surprised at how accessible the whole valve body assembly was; drop the oil, pan and strainer and its right there! Compared to adjusting the valve lash on my motorcycle, its way less steps and precision required to do the mechanical bits of a CVT valve body replacement.
