Gearboxes

A gearbox provides the drive to your wheels and propels you along. However, as with all things mechanical, they go wrong from time to time. You may experience whining noises, that aren’t from your kids! Or, maybe it becomes difficult to select a gear. Gearboxs also suffer from oil leaks, that can lead to other problems, often costly.

Apart from changing the oil in a gearbox, which should be done at the recommended service interval, there’s not much to do with a vehicle’s gearbox until the time comes, when it fails on you. However, it’s been our experience that total failure is rare, and is often preceded by warning symptoms. That’s the time to give us a call, so we can check it out for you.

Sometimes, depending on vehicle model, it is quicker and more cost effective to fit a reconditioned Gearbox. If this is the case, we’ll inform you at the point of diagnosing what’s wrong.
