How To Replace Transmission Oil Cooler 2000 - 2006 Chevy Tahoe

Created on: 2020-12-09

This video shows you how to install a new TRQ transmission oil cooler in your 2000-2006 Chevy Tahoe.

Take this cover off, you want to take all these pushpins off, just use a trim tool. Pop the center part up, and then underneath the rest of it. Do the same with the other ones. Take this cover off. Take this bolt out, use a 10-millimeter socket. Now there's plastic retainers that hold the grille on, use a Phillips head screwdriver, and just push and twist, you only have to twist it a little bit. See how that's loose. There's another one down here. That should be loose. And over here. That's loose, and over here. That's all loose. Now just grab the trim, now you have to just pull it out over here. Now it's all those loose and just grab this panel right here. And just pull straight forward just like that. If you struggle with getting your fingers in there, you can pull the light out, there's just two pins, pull straight up, pull the light out. Do the same on the other side. Slide the grille right off.

Now, take these two lines off. Just take this plastic cover, slide it down. You can use a screwdriver or a pick tool. And then there's a little clip here, take that clip out, use the pick tool. Slide that clip out. Do the same on this side. And then wiggle these lines off. And slide it out and do the same for the other side. There we go. And take these two push pins out, one on this side, use a clip tool or a trim tool. Do the same over here, and take these two bolts out, one here, one here. Use a 10-millimeter socket. And slide the cooler right up.

Now the new cooler has a slightly different bracket than the original one. And this little slot right here is gonna go on this bracket and right here. So just slide that in position. Just like that. And then if this clip pops out or this pops out, just push it in with a screwdriver to get it to line up. And take the bolts that you took from up here, and put those in down here. And tighten those down. Snug them up. Now if you have these caps, just take these off, there was one there. And take the lines if the line goes up. Press it back in and take the cover. Push this over. Make sure it's secure. Just like that, and then do the same on the other one.

Take the grille, and just slide it in position, push these clips in on the side. Make sure all these line up. Take a Phillips head screwdriver and just twist these, and there's four of them. This just locks it in. All right, that's good. And take this bolt, put that starter and tighten it down. And put this cover on, line it up, and put all the pushpins in. Lock them down.
