When replacing a TCM, be sure to install a protector pad onto it. This will ensure that it will not come in contact with surrounding parts and possibly causing an unusual noise such as a rattle. These protector pads are already installed on all mass production units, however they are not applied on service parts. Therefore, when replacing a TCM, be sure to install a protector pad using the following procedure.
