Automatic Gearbox Rebuilds, Reconditioning and Overhauls in Brisbane


Why do I need an automatic transmission overhaul? What does it involve?

Transmissions are a hard-working part of your vehicle, and they inevitably face issues at one point or another. Whether it be from old age or anything else, it’s important for any Brisbane driver to ensure any problems are properly addressed.

Sometimes, the fault in the automatic is internal; something has failed inside the transmission and it needs to be taken out of the car, stripped down and repaired or overhauled/reconditioned.

In an automatic gearbox overhaul, the gearbox is taken out of the car and stripped down and cleaned. Internal components are replaced and the transmission is put back together before being put back in the car.
