Thanks for the write up! Doing us all a favor here. Quick question: is it necessary to take the front bumper off, or can this be done without taking it off? I'll probably be bringing it to a shop with a lift to do it. Thanks again.

You can do it with the bumper on, taking it off made it easier to get to the trans cooler.

Excellent write up! Thank you very much!
I had my mind set that it was going to cost big bucks to pay a shop to do this service but after reading this write up I am confident i could do this myself...

What does it cost to have a dealership do it?

I know how to do this, but due to the fact that some of these transmissions fail, I want to make it as difficult as possible for Mitsubishi to deny anything.

OUCH!

Maybe I should find a reputable independent transmissions shop, pay them to do it, and have their warranty.

Great man

Question : how many exactly liter of fluid you fill in the transmission ?
do you fill also the filter house with fluid ?

I put in the same amount I took out. And yes I filled the filter housing first before putting it back on.
