    Default Gearbox repair

    My 2001 Colt Rodeo 2001 TD DC 4x4 needs work on the gearbox. Again.

    I had it repaired Nov 2015 for a huge sum of money.

    I am beginning to hear a noise which sounds like it needs attention. It is making a krrr krrr sound when I drive at a stable speed. I hear it in most gears.

    Any good gearbox people which I can trust to do a proper job in Centurion area?

    Anybody who I should avoid?

    And who is not going to charge an arm and a leg in the process.

    Thanks

    Johan

    The guys that could do proper gearbox rebuilds are in retirement by now. I trust very few with gearbox rebuilds. Would rather buy an good secondhand box/

    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    At some point the 2800 Rodeo might become uneconomical to repair, so Grips has a good idea. And Engines and More bring in decent stuff.

    Not Centurion, but you will search far for a cheaper and better place than Gearbox 4U in Gezina



    They redid my whole box on the 3.0 Ford for R6500.

    You don't, that is why there is a limited warranty.
