Top Gearbox Repair related questions

Even if your vehicle is not due for service yet, you should still get it checked when it starts to show certain warning signs. If you have an automatic gearbox, it’s advisable to get the fluid flushed and refilled every 30,000 miles. Meanwhile, for manual gearboxes, your fluid must be cleaned out every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.
It depends on the severity of the damage. Manual and automatic gearbox repairs usually take a full day. However, major repairs can take three to four days, especially if the entire gearbox system needs to be replaced.

What do gearbox repair services include?

A gearbox holds the gears that help adjust the speed and power of your car engine, making it easier to drive uphill or pass through slow traffic. If you’re starting to notice a dragging clutch or a buzzing noise in your vehicle, it may be time to have your gearbox checked to avoid problems with shifting gears while you're on the road. If it’s your first time getting your gearbox repaired, here’s what you can expect:

Gearbox Assessment and Disassembly

Your Tasker will open your car's gearbox to do an initial machine assessment. They will disassemble the bearings, backlash, and all the other parts of the gearbox to determine which are in good condition and which needs repairing.

Failure Analysis

Once all parts are taken out, they can now analyse what might have caused your gearbox to malfunction. A leak, low fluid levels and a clogged fluid filter are some of the most common causes of a gearbox failure.

Gearbox Repair and Assembly

The repair process involves fixing and restoring the parts of your gearbox machine to its former glory. Your Tasker will also replace the shafts, seals, shims, gears, and bearings, as well as clean the other components that don't need replacing. Once done, they will proceed to reassemble the gearbox.

Quality Assurance Testing and Final Inspection

Your Tasker will do quality assurance testing on your newly repaired gearbox to ensure that everything is working correctly. If it passes the noise and vibration tests, they will finish by repainting and sandblasting your gearbox using epoxy paint to prevent it from scratches, dents, and corrosion.
