looking at getting my auto serviced and i think the rear seal (where the tailshaft slides in) is gone as the c**t keeps leaking. Anyone know a roundabout price for an auto service on its own?

and a price for maybe replacing this rear seal/bush would be awsome if anyones had it done.

cheers, luke.

A proper tranny service at Ford (really the only place who can do it properly) is $250 to $300.

A pan flush and filter change is usually between $100 and $130.

That seal is about $8 from Ford. Only buy the genuine Ford one, as the aftermarket ones are cheap s**t. A mechanic will probably charge you $40 to $50 to put it in. But its something that can be done at home.

Jack up a** end. Remove tailshaft. Leaver out the old seal and tap in the new one evenly with hammer... Reinstall tailshaft. Job done!

youd recommend ford doing the trans service?

Your kidding right!


Standard transmission service around $110 from transmission specialist.

I had my rear seal and rear welsh plug done 2 years ago with a trans service, cost me $350 trade.

I'd say Ford... I don't know anyone else who has the necessary equipment to fully flush these boxes while in the car. Plus its one of the things that they can't f**k up... :D

Doing pan and filter only clears out 4 of the 12 odd litres in there. Depends how thorough a clean you want. No use doing 4l and have it turn brown and s**t cos the rest of the stuff in there is crap. I think Ford generally use about 20l of fluid to do the flush.

Me personally, i'd go the full flush. I cant see the point of really doing a hlaf assed job.

replacing the extension housing seal is just a band-aid to the situation. if the extension housing seal is leaking then generally the bushes behing that are buggered too.
