Volkswagen and BMW Transmission Repair for the Sydney Area

We take the time to understand the problems you are having with your vehicle

A successful service is all about asking the right questions to help identify the cause of the problem. This enables us to quote you as accurately as possible. We always endeavour to explain complex mechanical issues in simpler layman terms. You can feel confident and satisfied knowing that we’ll take the time to answer any questions you may have.

Servicing Your Transmission

Automatic transmissions are a complex electronic & pressure controlled unit which rely on delivery of clean/filtered lubricants to all parts of the transmission. It is also essential to ensure that your transmission oil is effectively cooled. These measures ensure an extended life of the many moving internal parts of the transmission, and early intervention is key in avoiding unnecessary costs to repair your transmission.

Around 60% of vehicles with transmission problems that come through our workshop have failed because of lack of servicing. All automatic transmissions are serviceable despite what you may have heard and servicing is key to detecting and identifying potential premature failures in your transmission.

Transmission Fluids

Using the correct fluids in your transmission is vital. Todays’ transmissions require the use of manufacturer recommended fluids. Use of the wrong fluid can have a major impact and can cause transmission failure. At Gearbox Solutions we have all the fluids necessary for all makes and models designed for your transmission. Please ensure your repairer is using the correct fluids.

Common Transmission Failures

The valve body or mechatronics unit – Most workshop scanners will detect faults associated with electrical, solenoid & sensor issues, however, our hands on experience with valve body symptoms means that in many cases we are able to identify faults that a scanner may not detect. When we test drive your vehicle we can, in most cases accurately diagnose and quote you for repairs. We continue to update our specialised tools and testing equipment for valve body repairs which we carry out in-house.

What We Do

All of our reconditioned transmissions are completely stripped, inspected and cleaned. We install new parts – Gaskets, seals, clutches, piston rings, bands & filter. The valve body is completely stripped, cleaned & vacuum tested to ensure the valves are operating correctly, any worn valves are then reamed and replaced with oversized valves. All our reconditioned transmissions also come with a reconditioned torque converter.

Trade Supply

Many people have a good relationship with their own mechanic and prefer to have them handle the installation, whether in Sydney Metro, Regional or Interstate. Our transmissions can be shipped anywhere in Australia. We stock a wide range of reconditioned transmissions, however, if we do not have it in stock we can arrange to collect your unit and have it returned after reconditioning. You will find our freight prices very competitive.

Tow Service

If your vehicle is not able to be driven, we have a tow service available for the Sydney Metro area. This is just another way we can save you money on your service.
