Does '13 Forester ATX replacement require initialization or programming post-install?
On my personal vehicle, need to replace the transmission for the front differential is rubbing, got noise and oil leaking out the axle seals with aluminum dust. I found a low-mileage transmission to put in. Aside from the mechanical R&R and changing ATF and putting new seals, is there any programming or initialization required once the new one is in?
My Subaru knowledge is limited and special tooling nonexistent. Any tips or tricks would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Maybe the Snap-On scanner has that function or else I'll have to limp over to Subaru?
Benjamin, Eddy's procedure is obviously correct / textbook procedure… Most of the time on these Subaru's you can just install the Used trans and it drives just fine.
FWIW, my shop did one of these transmissions a month ago. My Snap-On at 21.2 did not have the AT Learning function, but my Autel did.
Thanks for your input, everyone. I replaced the transmission (easiest I've done in awhile, except for those tiny torque converter bolts), filled it with ATF, warmed it up and ran it on the lift until the temperature got up to spec, and checked the fluid level again. Test drive was a little jittery at first, but smoothed out after about 30 minutes of stop and go traffic.
