Torx screws and
the rear access
panel and seats.
Set the temp
gauge to the
and you’re ready
to rock. ❏
The sensor should be less than an inch from the CVT belt. Throwing a belt
will take out the sensor if it’s directly over the belt, so offset the hole to
either side. Remove plastic shards and replace the CVT outer cover and
ducts, being sure to remove the rag. Zip-tie the sensor wire and extension
as you route them up the driveline tunnel.
Replace the bed access panel. Remove the seats, driveline console plastic
rivets and Torx fasteners, and route the sensor extension out the front of
the tunnel. Zip-tie the wire away from the driveshaft as you go; we used
the OEM wiring loom as a guide.
Remove the hood panel and unbolt the dash. In the “firewall,” this large
grommet is split to accept accessory wiring. Run the sensor wire through
the slit and attach to the Trail Tech temp gauge.
Decide where you want to place the gauge. We used the kit’s two-sided
tape to mount ours, because we didn’t want to drill holes in our loan unit’s
dash. You may want to secure it permanently with two M4 (#6) screws
(not included). Zip-tie the excess sensor wire under the dash and replace
the dash and hood panel.
