Manual & Automatic Gearbox Repairs for All Major Manufacturers
The gearbox plays a critical role in controlling the power generated by the engine and transmitting it to the wheels at various speeds. Your vehicle's transmission is a very complex mechanical and electrical system, however, many gearbox repairs are often small and affordable. Gearboxes can develop several problems over time, including worn gears, damaged synchromeshes, and fluid leaks. These issues can result in symptoms like gears slipping, difficulty shifting, strange noises, or vibrations. If you ignore the warnings, your gearbox can often become expensive to repair further down the road. If your car is slipping gears, leaking fluid or slow to react, then you might have a problem with your transmission.
At Service4Service we provide high-quality gearbox repairs for all major manufacturers. There are different types of gearboxes used in cars, including manual, automatic, semi-automatic (also known as automated manual), and continuously variable transmissions (CVTs). Each type requires different repair techniques and expertise. We offer repairs for manual gearboxes, automatic gearbox repairs, hybrid gearboxes, Powershift gearboxes, CVT, DCT and DSG gearboxes. Automatic transmissions are more complex and may require repairs related to torque converters, valve bodies, fluid leaks, electronic controls, and solenoids. Rebuilding or overhauling the automatic transmission can become necessary in severe cases. Depending on the extent of damage and the age of the vehicle, it may be more cost-effective to rebuild the gearbox rather than replace it with a new one.
Gearbox repair requires specialised knowledge and experience. It's essential to entrust this work to certified and experienced technicians or transmission specialists who have the necessary tools and diagnostic equipment. We only use OEM or manufacturer warranty-approved parts to ensure that our customers’ vehicles remain in top condition. For expert manual and automatic gearbox repairs, our gearbox technicians provide exceptional mechanical services.

Gearbox Repair FAQs
Understanding your vehicle's maintenance needs, and addressing issues promptly are key to maintaining your car's performance and reliability. If you have specific questions about your vehicle or a repair issue, don't hesitate to call Service4Service on 0808 164 0418 for guidance.
What are the signs that my car's gearbox needs repair?
Common signs that your car's gearbox needs to be repaired include slipping gears, difficulty shifting gears, grinding noises, fluid leaks, and vibrations during gear changes. If you notice any of these symptoms, it's essential to have your gearbox inspected by our highly skilled technicians to avoid further damage.
What types of gearbox repairs can you carry out?
We provide several options to rectify a faulty gearbox including reconditioning your existing gearbox, replacing with a new gearbox or replacing with a reconditioned gearbox. Our specialist gearbox technicians only fit Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) approved parts only and all gearbox repairs come with a 12-month guarantee.
What equipment do you use to repair gearboxes?
At Service4Service, we can confidently diagnose any gearbox issues using the latest computer diagnostic equipment, repairing and replacing only the things that require it, using industry-approved tools and parts.
How long does it take to repair a car gearbox?
The time required for gearbox repair can vary widely depending on the extent of the damage and the availability of replacement parts. Minor gearbox repairs may take a few hours, while a complete transmission rebuild can take several days.
What causes a gearbox to break?
Even when we think we’re taking care of our cars, our gearboxes can still break down, lack of care, poor quality oil and poor driving habits are some of the most common reasons for a gearbox to break.
Is it possible to drive a car with a damaged gearbox?
It's not advisable to drive a car with a damaged gearbox, as this can lead to further damage and potentially unsafe driving conditions. It's best to have the issue diagnosed and repaired promptly.
How do I know if my car has a manual or automatic gearbox?
Manual gearboxes require manual gear shifting using a clutch pedal, while automatic gearboxes shift gears automatically. Some cars also have semi-automatic or CVT transmissions, which are variations of automatic transmissions.
What is the difference between gearbox repair and replacement?
Gearbox repair involves fixing specific issues within the existing transmission, such as replacing worn components or addressing fluid leaks. Gearbox replacement means installing an entirely new transmission unit.
Why is my gearbox leaking oil?
Oil leaks can happen for a number of reasons, from wear and tear or broken seals to overfilled oil levels. Over time, your vehicle is at risk of general wear and tear and unfortunately, that includes your gearbox and it’s related connections. Leaks should be fixed quickly, so it’s best to speak to a professional and get your car checked over at an approved garage.
Will I need a new gearbox if it's leaking fluid?
We would need to see your vehicle in order to correctly diagnose the issue. A leaking gearbox could be caused by a number of issues which usually only require a minor repair, so you should always visit a gearbox specialist to get it repaired quickly. Ignoring a leaking gearbox might lead to further damage.
Should I be worried if my gearbox is making noises?
Yes, you should be concerned if your car's gearbox is making unusual noises. Unusual noises are one of the most obvious signs that something might be not quite right. Whether it’s whining, whirring, clunking or grinding, if you’re hearing anything out of the ordinary, it can be a sign to contact a gearbox repair specialist.
Why does my gearbox make a grinding noise?
The gearbox shafts need to be moving at the same speed in order to change gears smoothly and when this doesn’t happen, you’ll hear grinding. Modern cars tend to have a synchroniser ring to help keep both parts up to speed, but this can also go wrong from time to time, so it’s best to have things checked out.
Will I need a new gearbox if it's slipping out of gear?
In many cases, a slipping gearbox does not necessarily mean you will need a completely new gearbox, but it does indicate a problem that should be addressed promptly. A fault like this can be caused by any number of reasons, such as low fluid levels. Regular maintenance and inspections of your gearbox and all of the related components will save you time and money.
Why does my vehicle need the gearbox removed?
Some parts of your gearbox can be repaired without removing them from your vehicle, but not all transmission parts are quite so easily accessible. If a gearbox component needs to be repaired or replaced and it cannot be accessed from underneath the vehicle, then the transmission will need to be removed from the vehicle.
How much does car gearbox repair cost?
The cost of gearbox repair can vary greatly depending on factors such as the type of transmission, the severity of the damage, labour costs, and the availability of parts. Minor repairs may be relatively affordable, while major repairs or complete replacements can become more costly. We offer finance deals for repairs costing over £350.
Why does my vehicle need a gearbox rebuild?
Some damage to the gearbox may go beyond the repair of a single component. Over time, wear and tear can cause gears and other parts to not function properly. When this happens, a gearbox rebuild is needed to replace the faulty and damaged parts. With years of experience, our technicians can rebuild your existing gearbox using the latest technology.
