My el gearbox is slipping inbetween gears sumtimes it does sumtimes it dnt it has 226ks on it i was wondering how much it will cost to fix as i dnt wanna have to buy what it dnt need atm it has enough oil in it it jus had a pan change (it was doin it b4 incase u were wondering)

Is there a way i can test the s5 while its in the box sealed and can i test the bands without opening it up

I got told by a mate it was just the bands

Follow your mate's advice (and check the fluid level while you're at it).

being a el box there is no external band adjustment, its pre set on assembly so unless its low on fluid or a pressure solinoid problem its a box out job...

au box should fit ive never fitted one myself but there are a few lads around town here that have done it. as for how much the guy is trying to slug you for labour and a reco job i hope you told his to sh!t in one hand and wish in the other n see which fills up first. you can pick up reco trans for pretty cheap dad brought a reco box for mums ba last year for about $500 and fitted it himself.
