    Hours of Labor to replace CVT? How many hours?

    How many hours of labor does it take to swap out the CVT transmission?

    Because I had read it take 6 hours to replace the clutch of a 5 speed manual transmission.

    80 * 6 = $480

    I don't have a labour guide, but it's not gonna be much longer to do a cvt. Add some time for 4 torque converter bolts, and extra electrical plug or 2, 2 coolant hoses and they're a lot heavier. I haven't changed a 5 speed mirage trans but I'm sure I could do it in under 6hrs.

    Thank you for this information. Definitely not something I myself would be qualified to perform, thats for sure.

    But why not take a chance, right? That's what some of us are going to be doing...
