New Trans installed, and they Did RMS Just in case

Recommended Posts

So yesterday the dealer installed my new transmission on my 03 996(The tech and I both felt that after 4000 miles it should feel much easier to shift than it did).

Well the new transmission feels great, easy and smooth shifting, but while they had the transmission out, they put in a new RMS, just in case since they were there anyway.

Should I be worried? I wasn't leaking any oil and there were no spots on the garage floor.

Also a question on factory reman transmissions, what exactly to the reuse, is it only the case or do they reuse everything except the seals and the synchros.

Thanks in advance,

This may sounds like a dimb question.....but why would a RMS seal be changed if it is NOT leaking? I'm a bit confused. This would indicate that the seal is the problem for PNCA and PAG but yet they continue to put the darn seal in? Any thoughts?

I was told since they had the whole thing apart to replace the transmission and figured for the cost of the part(less than 20 bucks) it does not pay not to replace it just incase.

I guess it's like when you change a clutch you change the clutch you change the throwout bearing just in case.
