From personal experience, most 150 000km plus falcons need a new tail shaft bush when the seal is replaced. I never used to do it, but then i started getting 'come backs' (no mechanic ever wants come backs) so now they get bushes aswell. and the come backs stopped.


Here is a man that makes some sense!

I have done hundreds - maybe thousands of BTR's in my time (24 years being a transmission specialist) - Every white metal case & extension housing bush got replaced in rebuilds due to that reason.

I had a tool to remove & replace the extension housing bush without taking the housing off the car - very handy if you do lots of servicing, It takes about 5 minutes longer than doing just the seal.

The tool can also be used on T5's, most GMH trans, Borg warners (auto + manual), C4's etc - It cost $200, but it paid for itself in no time.

If you've got more hands on experience and knowledge than the guys in the previous few posts, then I'd listen to you, otherwise . . . . . .

Did you find the T5 bushes wear out as quick and as much as the BTR autos - I'd assume in dimensions they'd be the same.
From visual, looked like the T5 bushes had a brass type colour, so I'm not sure if they were the same.

The T5 bushes are longer, about twice as long and are bronze. You can use 2 bushes together. Same seal can be used too, I use the BA seal.....has 4 lips.....even in a C4/5/10.

Yeah, thanks for that info - I thought they might be bronze, as they looked to be same material as transmission thrust washers, etc.
The few T5's I've done, IIRC I didn't see a huge amount of wear in those bushes, most likely because of the material, and the oil circulating grooves in the bush surface ??

What is the bolt type called that holds the rear extension housing onto the actual transmission?

What i am trying to ask is what type of bolt head is it?

It's not your standard bolt where you can use a spanner & it looks like an inverted Torx kind of a bolt.

If it is a male torx bolt then does anyone know what size it is?


thx

i got quoted $300 for the following...

1) Trans service (includes oil, filter & gasket)
2) Rear Ext Housing seal
3) Rear Ext Housing Bush

I done #1 & #2 @ home for $80 in parts & about 2 - 3 hours work.

Cars now running smooth & not leaking any trans fluid :)

hey guys, resurrecting this post a bit, I'm just replacing my rear seal, bought the new one which looks flush at the outer ( back ) face but looking at the one that's currently on the car it looks like the rubber part extends out about 10 mm in a thin tube like extension from the actual seal if you follow me... does this matter? are there two different types??
