Opel vivaro semi-auto after repair trans reset procedure?

1
My friend asked me to ask anybody i know who may help. I thought i would ask here because the members know everything.

I personally dont know anything, all i know is what my friend said.

They have a 2008 Nissan something van but they say its really a opel vivaro with a nissan badge, so it will be best to ask in the Opel section, because its usually Opel mechanics who know these the best.

Their van has a semi-auto transmission. The clutch burnt after pulling something very heavy and they just put in a new clutch etc. However the van will not go to any gear.

Opel said that after work is done on the clutch/transmission/hydraulic system, some procedure has to be done to reset or recalibrate or virgin or i dont know what but SOMETHING has to be done to the transmission module for it to work again. Maybe its something with the hydraulic system or something but it has to be done with OBD.

Opel however said they cannot do it, they only have a small workshop near here.

Independant transmission specialists all said they will never touch it because Vivaro semi-auto is shit and they dont want this work.

Auto electronics/obd/tuning specialists said the same thing.

Everybody hates these systems and does not want to touch them even for money.

So, does anybody know what this problem is?

And is there a procedure to make the system ready after repairs?

I have opcom and delphi but nothing better. My friend has no obd stuff at all.

Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks

Ok so looks like my friend found a solution...maybe.

At least his van is now driving and working ok.

It seems the problem is how to take the air out of the hydraulic fluid, because when you change the clutch obviously the system is full of air.

Obd software is needed to tell the pump to pump fluid, and you have to open the bleed screw to let the air come out, just like with brakes. The problem is that with brakes you can pump the pedal with your foot. With this system the pump is automatic, so you have to ask the trans control module to do it.

BUT

He found a way to do it without OBD. You have to take the air out backwards. So you connect a big pressure pump or syringe or other way to pump fluid to the bleed screw, and pump the fluid thru the bleed screw, through the mechanism and into the reservoir. Once you see only clean fluid with no air going to the reservoir, you can close the bleed screw and its done.

In my friends van this was sucessful. Its driving ok.
