This may be caused by a broken retaining clip in the valve body that secures the forward clutch control valve and spring in place. ACTION Replace broken forward clutch control valve retaining clip with revised forward clutch control valve retaining clip. Refer to the following SERVICE PROCEDURE for details. SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Inspect for a broken retaining clip by removing the valve body and then the valve body separator plate. Inspect the forward clutch control valve, spring, retaining clip, and valve body casting for damage ( Fig. 1 ). 2. If the clip is broken and the forward clutch control valve and/or valve body casting is damaged, replace the main control. The retaining clip has just been revised to prevent the chance of breakage. The revised Retaining Clip (F8DZ-7F194-AA) has circular cutouts on the side of the clip in place of the square cutouts on the previous design level clip ( Fig. 2 ). 3. Inspect the new main control (if required) before installing it and replace this retaining clip for the forward clutch control valve and spring if it's not the new design ( Fig. 2 ). 4. Any time service is required on any AX4N transaxle main control, inspect the retaining clip for the forward clutch control valve to be sure it is the latest design level, and replace the retaining clip if it is not. The revised clip is larger and will remain centered in the valve body casting groove.
