Can anyone indicate where the (Front motor fluid) is removed and added. As I am only finding Transaxle fluid change on Youtube. Reason I saw in a service manual two terms, using CVTF-J4 for the Front motor and ATF SP III for the Transaxle respectfully......please guide.

Richi.... please guide, as I am a little confused. I am aware of the two coolant system (Engine & electric motors) but this in the manual is misleading.....suggesting that the Transaxle's (Front & Rear) uses one type of "fluid" oil and the Front electric motor to the Transaxle uses CVTF-J4.

ATF in the two transaxles, yes. And many owners have found it a good idea to replace it every few years (especially the front). Search "transaxle" in the FAQ.

Neither of he two motors/MCUs have lubricant that can be changed. One of them uses CVT oil as a coolant (the other uses conventional water based coolant). I don't know any reason to exceed the service schedule for changing those.
