    Default Need A442F Gearbox

    What are my options with regards to the A442f gearbox, the one i have in the 1HD-t is stuffed. is it possible to repair, where can i get spares.
    who has a workshop to repair these auto boxes?
    is it even worth repairing? anyone with any experience of trying to repair and ending up spending double the money.
    Should have just bought a new/overhauled guarantee gearbox in the first place?

    I would just like to hear a few different opinions on this

    or should i just buy a manual 4.5 gearbox and fit that \?
    can this work?
    is it viable?

    Thanks

    Can't you use one of the Aisin A650 or A750 boxes out of the Lexus or later Land Cruisers? With a transmission controller?

    I see you are in Maun. There is no-one in Botswana that can fix the A442F. They all send it to SA.

    I had mine fixed/reconditioned. +- R30000-00. I'm not happy.

    You can buy a reconditioned unit from Tokia4x4 in Pretoria. They gave me a quote +- a year ago. R28500 + VAT. Contact Sydney at [email protected] .

    The repair manual is all over the internet in PDF format. EDIT: Send my your email address by PM. I will forward you a copy.

    Also speak to Jan Slabber (Swart Jan) on this forum.

    They repaired my A442 when two clutches packed up. Was 100% after repairs.

    Can I also buy one from N14x4, https://www.n14x4.co.za/

    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    Check that you get the correct one.

    • Full mechanical 4 speed. The shifter has 1,2,3,D
    • The one with some electronics. 3 Speed with overdrive. Shifter has 1,2,D and the overdrive button on the side.


    I don't know how easy/difficult it is to change from the one to the other. Sure it will not be imposable.
