Has anyone done a tranny flush on their CVT? It seems much more complicated than a traditional flush or more complicated than just pulling the plug, draining it and refilling. I'm trying to avoid spending $500 by having a dealer doing it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A CVT flush is like a regular automatic flush. Basically you are going to park the car, disconnect the line from one side of the cooler and hook a piece of hose to the other side. You need to find which one the fluid runs out of vs would suck it in. Get someone to start the car with both hoses in 1 bucket. Car may need to be in nutral vs park for this to work. Car should still start. One you find this out the hose that did not have fluid running out you want to connect a funnel to and add fluid to.

Clear tube is best to observe color and you way want to put a segment on the other side too to compare color of in going vs out going fluid so its matches when you are done. Yes, when both the discharge and uptake are the same color its flushed. This may take a few gallons. The "flush kit" for most auto shops is a big box with a bag make into it to discharge the fluid into. Then a second box full of 5 gallons of fluid to take from.
