A week of many gearboxes!

A theme is emerging this week in our busy Land Rover independent specialist workshop in Louth Lincolnshire!

Firstly we investigated a P38 2.5 diesel which would only engage first and reverse gears; diagnosis – gearbox replacement. This is on ramp #1 having a reconditioned automatic gearbox fitted with new drive plate.

Next came a Td5 Land Rover 90 hardtop with a worn out clutch, which we removed only to discover that the main-shaft on the gearbox was excessively worn. Replacement gearbox on its way. At the same time we will fit new OEM parts; clutch plate, cover, spigot bush and dual-mass flywheel.

We are collecting a Land Rover Discovery Td5 from Immingham docks later this week which has come into the UK from Norway for us to supply and fit a reconditioned automatic gearbox. We hope to be able to turn it around with a smart new gearbox in time for the next ferry sailing back to Gothenburg.

Today’s pictures show one of our technicians hard at work under a Land Rover Defender 90, and a line of Td5 Discovery IIs in our main workshop awaiting fitment of new Land Rover parts and accessories.
