Do you need a gearbox repair? Look out for these clues and signals.

Expert automatic and manual gearbox, transmission & differential repairs. Over time bearings tend to wear down which create an excess of play inside the gearbox allowing the gears and shafts to move around more than they should.


Shifting Delay

This is usually caused by a clutch that needs to be replaced, but may sometimes point to a more severe problem.


Gearbox making strange noises.

The sounds that are produced vary widely between different makes and models, but the best way to describe them is that you’ll probably hear a humming, buzzing or whining noise. This needs to be diagnosed by a professional mechanic.


Leaking/Low Fluid

A leak is probably the most recognisable symptom and should be repaired as soon as possible. Letting the fluid leak is one of the most common causes transmission break down.


Gearbox Burning Smell

Any burning smell coming from your car is a cause for concern. Overheating transmission fluid is one of the causes of a burning smell. Transmission fluid helps keep the parts lubricated and cooled so that they don’t get worn out and damaged.

Dragging Clutch

The clutch disk fails to disengage the flywheel when the clutch pedal is pressed. The clutch is still spinning with the engine which makes it anywhere from difficult to impossible to change gears.
