Drain

The following steps drain the power conversion system within the HV battery and the rear drive unit.

  1. Position a coolant drain under the front RH corner of the HV battery.
  2. Disconnect the powertrain return hose at the RH side of the vehicle and plug the female connector.
  3. Attach the drain fitting adapter to the male connector, and position over the coolant drain.
  4. Disconnect the rear powertrain supply hose at the RH side of the vehicle and plug the male connector.
  5. Attach the pressure fitting adapter to the female connector.
  6. Make sure the valve on the pressure regulator is closed and the regulator is set to zero.
  7. Attach the coolant pressure tester to the pressure fitting adapter.
  8. Attach the compressed air line to the regulator and set the regulator to 20 psi.
  9. Open the valve on the drain fitting adapter.
  10. Slowly open the valve on the regulator and allow the coolant to drain.
  11. Close the valve on the regulator and disconnect the compressed air line from the regulator.
  12. Disconnect the drain fitting adapter and pressure fitting adapter from the connectors.
1Position a coolant drain under the front RH corner of the HV battery.
2Disconnect the powertrain return hose at the RH side of the vehicle and plug the female connector.
3Attach the drain fitting adapter to the male connector, and position over the coolant drain.
