the bands can be adjusted, or replaced if they are buggered, and its best to have a filter kit put through it when its serviced.

Some people do go to the trouble of changing the rear servo seals and gasket? Might be worth a look.

The bands can only be replaced during an overhaul.... :(

To adjust the bands on your AU trans, The valvebody has to be removed to adjust them - using a selective shim system, similar to a wheel alignment camber adjustment... :( :(

If a transmission place did a service on it, I can guarantee 99.9% of them will not remove the valvebody to do the adjustments - It's pan off, change the filter, fill her up with oil & out she goes!
