Good afternoon.
Ive seen transmission rebuild kits on evil bay for $300 is this something a diy enthusiast could tackle them selves?

I have access to the genuine ford workshop manual and ive done things like basic engine rebuilds. Auto to manual conversions etc.

Has anyone ever tackled this themselves or is it a specialist with specialty tools only thing?

Thank you

most ive done is oil pump replacement on a gearbox.

i pulled the output shaft and had a look at it and was like. nope nope nope. :lol: :lol: .

best bet would be get a broken box and have a play. but it does not seem like fun.

Not something I would try myself. Too easy to stuff it up.

Give it a go if you feel game.

Yeah i have to agree.

I pulled my old one apart after i did a manual conversion just to see and holy crap they look complicated.

I did find all the material of half of the clutches and front band was worn away (clutches we weird as it wasnt even wear around the plates)but stuffed if i had any idea how to put it back together lol

Im happy with my t5 anyway.

Cheers.
