I'm afraid that is against forum Policy....

Rule 16:
16. There will be no posts or threads containing a direct link to Toyota Factory Service Manuals. All threads regarding any copyrighted Toyota material (ie., Entune) will be deleted, and Forum Administrators/Moderators reserve the right to determine what material is copyrighted or not. First offense will result in a warning, second a temporary ban, third a permanent ban. Click here to read more about this policy, particularly if you consider it unfair. Links to pirated software of any kind will not be tolerated either.

Explanation:
Toyota Nation included this rule because--contrary to popular notion--Toyota Nation is not owned or operated by Toyota Motor Corporation but is instead a private business owned by Autoguide.com. Toyota, as legal owner of all copyrighted material printed under its name, contacted Toyota Nation (among a number of other businesses) and demanded that free copies of the FSM disseminated online via web URLs or other download links not be allowed as it violates modern copyright law. Failure to follow Toyota's request would result in a lawsuit as well as an inability to use the Toyota name. Put in the most simple terms from our point of view: No use of the word Toyota means no Toyota Nation. So you can see, compliance on our part is an absolute must.

Sorry........but thanks for your understanding. :)

What I usually do (as do many others here) is document my own work when I do a procedure others can benefit from and post here as a DIY write-up. I also own an FSM for my car. Is my DIY inspired by the FSM? Sure. But it's my words, my pictures, and often my tinkering getting around tool/procedure limitations from not working in a shop environment. I usually post stuff like torque values verbatim from the FSM.

The additional benefit to a well-written DIY is that it introduces a level of practicality and ease of language usually not found in an FSM. The FSMs tend to be formal, have awkward language, and often assume you have all the "special tools" in the world available to you. A DIY is all about doing it in a practical manner in your own garage or driveway.

Just thought I'd throw that out there in case you'd get inspired to write a CVT fluid DIY. :)

Basically - the car has to be level and you have to use TechStream to monitor the fluid temperature.

Short answer is it needs to be done (according to the owner's manual it never needs to be done) at the dealer - but it can be hard to find a dealer that understands the procedure since CVT's are new since 2014.

Agreed - also good member written DIY's will have things like "Remove the bolt circled in green. Do NOT remove the bolt circled in RED - it is not related and is a pain to put back on if you remove it by mistake." FSM's assume you understand things like this.
