The constantly variable transmission (CVT) JF009E (RE0F08A) is constructed for the class "mini" and can be paired with engines up to 1800 cm3. In 2002, the RE0F08A unit replaced not very popular RE0F21A modification.

The JF009E transmission found application in various Nissan models, (1.8L Nissan Serena, March, Cube 2000-09, Micra 03-09. FIAT Punto, Palo, Uno 03-09...), but became more popular in Nissan Cube, Tiida and Wingroad. In terms of design, this CVT is similar to neighboring Jatco variators and comes between highly-demanded JF011E (for the middle class) and JF015E (for the class mini/micro). Many spare parts from the RE0F21A unit are interchangeable.

Technical issues and repair guidelines

The main repair procedure for this invincible gearbox lies in fluid change and filter replacement. This CVT is sensitive to contaminated and cold transmission fluid. But in general, components of this CVT have an immense reserve for aggregated engines, serving for a long period of time even with contaminated fluid and clogged filters. The main coarse filter (made of metal with a mesh) is located in the pan and operates for a long period of time. This CVT also has an external fine filter, which is usually changed every 50-60 thousand kilometers. The reassembly includes spare parts replacement (Repair kit of gaskets and seals).

The design of this CVT family is developed for engines with a higher torque and has such a solid reserve of CVT components, that it gets in repair services when the car itself exhausts its resource, therefore repair procedures in these CVTs are so rare.
