thanks for reply I was thinking that all the initial wear would happen in the first couple of thousand miles and any loose debris could be flushed out by a change of fluid just thinking long term it might be a good idea or maybe its a waste of time

I get my Jazz Hybrid changed every 25,000 miles as per service requirements. My Jazz is 3 years and a month old, and is due its FIFTH CVT fluid change in the next few weeks. :) Honda main dealers charge 70 for the fluid change.

I am sure that if Honda thought that the CVT fluid needed changing that quick they would include it in the service schedule, After all, they would make money out of it.

Getting back to the original question, I believe its a straightforward drain and refill, but I think its a case of the fluid deteriates rather than gets contaminated with debris. The car does feel smoother once the fluid has been changed, especially when moving away from stationary.

I was just really trying to be extra careful by changing it myself after a couple of thousand miles but its probably not really needed

So far it seems no one changes their own CVT fluid? Is it difficult to do DIY? Presumed it was as easy as an engine oil change but can't see any topic on doing it oneself. Mk1 and 2 Jazz

Trust me, they do. It's just damn difficult holding a camera when you've oil all over your gloves! (Then finding the time to write and post it all up)

This is for a GD Jazz, but it'll be similar for a GE.

Get some CVT-F x2. Case holds 5.4l and only 3.2l comes out on a drain, so change is done twice to flush.

Also grab a fresh drain plug washer or two while you're at it.

DSCF7488 by macplaxton, on Flickr

The drain plug is definitely NOT a 10mm square, but a 9.5mm or 3/8" one.

The filler is the dipstick tube.

DSCF7441 by macplaxton, on Flickr

Find a funnel with a long enough spout.

To reach and go into the dipstick tube.

Find a drain pan. This one fitted under without jacking the car up.

DSCF7461 by macplaxton, on Flickr

Find the drain plug (right of picture).
DSCF7470 by macplaxton, on Flickr

Undo drain plug.

DSCF7471 by macplaxton, on Flickr

Drain oil. If I was doing it again, I'd probably remove the plastic guards.

DSCF7472 by macplaxton, on Flickr

Clean the furry sump plug magnet and replace washer.

DSCF7482 by macplaxton, on Flickr

Old oil. (34k miles)

DSCF7484 by macplaxton, on Flickr

New oil.

Get the driving wheels off the ground and run it all selector positions to slosh it all around. Go out and re-set the clutch calibration. Rinse and repeat.

That's more or less it.

Find an empty road. Take the car up to 40mph with nothing electrical on. Then turn the dipped beam on and let the car coast to 20mph.

Forget about trying to short pins 4 and 9 on the DTC socket on a UK model, pin four isn't even wired up so will do nothing.

How much is the oil from Honda just out of interest?

I expect 4L to be approx 40 UK. It's approx 50 in Ireland.
