ha, nice setup to refill the transmission oil

whenever I change my wagon's transmission oil I get it done at the dealership they have a machine that splices into the transmission oil cooler loop and it circulates all the old oil out and replaces it with new oil as it flows through the transmission (engine is running during the change)

Strangely, on my Toyota the transmission oil change procedure is just drain and refill like you did.
I did it all for the nookie

I go to the dealer for...nothing. They sell NEW cars and always laugh at the wagon and ask me if I want to upgrade....This is at EVERY one I have ever gone to! I think the last time I went was for wiper blades cause I still can't figure them out, and they install them for free. Had bad times with them over the repair of coupe's seat belt motor and how they and Honda would not repair it per the documented notice by them of lifetime repair. They danced around the words and said it only applies to belt..not mechanics.
Transmission oil..if on auto, is simple. On a manual...it's disigned so stupid of how to replace ..it's incredable they sold them with that inability to easily do it. It is doable..if you don't mind getting under the car, removing a bolt (or is it two), collecting the oil, using a long funnel to pour new into hole, closing the bolt. PITA!!!

Yeah the dealers around here are totally useless aswell.
Luckily a friend has a garage and if I need anything I ask him or borrow the ramp for a while

As lee said. I was advised not to do a full flush on the fluid as it hadn't been changed for a long, long time. I was told it was best to dilute new with the old. Do a few thousand miles and then do another drain and re-fill. As this was kinder on the seals/ rubbers etc.

You could spray silicone on it and it will slip off..but I have no clue as to how to get it to stay back on. Since you just put it on..try a straight razor to lift an edge...peel it and readjust. Rub it back down and see what happens.
But it really doesn't look too off.
