Hi everyone!
I already have the repair manual for this car, but it doesn't say anything about how to disassemble the torque converter, just references it as a whole. The transaxle model is KM 175. Any hint? Special cares to have in mind?

Thanks a lot guys!

Torque convertor is a sealed unit and cannot be dismantled or repaired

Thanks! That's what I thought, bc I couldn't find any manual explaining how to do it. So we've opened it anyways and now are trying to find some spare parts, bc here in Argentina we've heard of some people who did it before. I'll let you know if it works!

Repairing requires technical knowledge of the part's and the way it works ! Good luck with your repair plans. I would source a new convertor if I was you?

Good luck. Let me know how you do !

Hey Dave! We did it! Finally we re-assembled the whole thing and it's working! We're now making just some adjustments but everything looks ok. This is the first car i've ever touched in my whole young life :) it was fun, we repaired the engine, the rear clutch from the automatic transmission, cleaned the valve body, every single pump and motor. Etc About the torque converter. There's some guy here where I live who repairs it, he made an awesome job, bc besides soldering it back, he replaced the brake lining (i guess that's the name) and changed some part of the turbine which is attached by some sort of pins which in turn he had to cut off without even changing the whole turbine!

We basically have a new car bought for nothing and w/just a little money spent on spare parts (refurbished) + fun :-)
