and gearbox service
is best carried out by a workshop that specialises in this particular area. Every engine has a gearbox
attached to it. The engine drives the gearbox which in turn drives the wheels. A gearbox
can either manual or automatic. Usually faults within a gearbox
are mileage related or can result from poor servicing. A modern DSG gearbox
(automated manual) needs regular oil and filter changes otherwise they can fail leaving the customer with a very unwelcome bill of thousands.
What are some common causes of gearbox repairs?
Two common causes of gearbox
problems are worn synchromesh
or noisy bearings. Worn synchromesh will result in a grating noise when driving. This also causes difficulty when changing gear. Unfortunately to fix common gearbox
problems the gearbox
has to be removed from the car. When doing this technicians will always inspect and replace the clutch if necessary. The clutch transfers power created by the engine to the gearbox
and has a friction plate (clutch disc) which has a limited lifespan. Changing the clutch when your gearbox
is being removed adds very little to the labour rate of the job and can protect against future work needed
