1999 X308 Sovereign LWB, concourse condition. 240,000km V8.
Sadly freinds , the car has lost the reverse gear, so i did a complete transmssion oil change of 10 liters by myself, in one go, and now the car drives better in forward gears , but reverse is still gone when hot. When cold, reverse is ok.
Imo , its the Sun Shaft gear bushings that have worn out, causing oil to seep through when warm. Now with even the transmission additive i added this time around i dont see the new clean oil decreasing the seepage compared to the old think dirty oil.
Are there any recommendations for a ZF transmission shop in Sydney Australia that will do a good rebuild and NOT DESTROY the rest of the car, … someone who will actually replace all the bolts, torque them right, redo the exhaust system right etc?..and actually rebuild the trany properly.
all recomendations appreciated.
