DIY Transmission Rebuild?

Recommended Posts

I have the typical 2nd gear synchro issue on my 2000 Boxster S. When I bought it, I (regrettably) did not do a PII and overpaid too. Yes, I can analyze the things I SHOULD have done, but I am trying to look forward on how to get us much enjoyment out of my purchase.

I have already done some work on it myself (water pump, radiator, short circuit repair, transmission fluid, oil and filter) which chewed further into the $$$.

The only nagging issue that I am now aware of is this 2nd gear grinding. I have figured out that I can double-clutch (up) into 2nd without the grind. However, that doesn't make for sporty shifting (at least not how I double-clutch) and also doesn't work well for shifting down for a turn.

Is it possible to do a DIY repair on the 2nd gear synchro? Are there step-by-step details available on how to do it? I have seen instructions for other transmissions (below), but not for the Boxster 6-speed. Any help?

Well, IIRC Porsche has made the tranny parts available now... but I haven't seen any DIYs.

Have you read about the detents, I've heard they can improve these types of problems (unless you're sure its a synchro).

      Hi!
      I have a 1999 C4 coupe with a manual transmission. Earlier in the spring, I had the transmission repaired -- 2nd gear replaced and the pinion bearing replaced, too.
      Since then, I installed a short-shift kit myself.
      Today, I noticed that the back-up lights aren't illuminating. All the gears engage fine, including reverse, so I don't think there's an adjustment problem. I don't know if the lights were working or not before my short-shift installation.
      What are the likely causes for the lights not working? Switch wasn't reconnected after tranny work, or the switch is bad, I guess. But could my short-shift installation be causing the problem?
      Thanks!

      I have a 97 tiptronic non turbo boxster. I blew my front seal so I need to rebuild my tranny. I just need to know what the parts numbers are for the bushing and seal.... I cant seem to find em and want to make sure I order the right parts.
       
      I heard you can actually order a larger bearing and seal and then machine out the tranny where it goes into and in turn avoid this sort of issue for much longer.. if that helps identify what im needing here im sorry im sort of lacking in the lingo im still learning and will update with a better description once i can go over it again with the boyfriend.

      Just wanted to say thanks to the community helped answer some questions about the scoring on my 2008 CTT 957. My next question is, does anyone know where I may purchase a complete engine seals and gasket kit for a 2008 Cayenne Turbo? Or if these are unavailable as a whole unit, had anyone rebuilt their engine from the cylinder scoring or something similar and have a parts list of required seals and gaskets which need changed? Additionally, are there any other suggestions on parts that I should change some I'll have the motor apart? Anything would help at this point. Thanks

      My 2001 C4 Automatic had what appeared to slip (over rev) when making scarp turns, decided to replace transmission filter and refill, the first run after 10 minuets the transmission went into limp mode (lights on drive selector started to flash) check engine lamp came on (P0734 and P0734) was read. the reason given was input and output ratio wrong for both codes.
      The Durmatic gave no other info. So I proceeded to  order both input and output sensors. Since I couldn't confirm if a shift selonod was bad. Mean while I am in Cal for the holidays I remembered I moved two of the magnets in the pan there were 4 magnets 2 each in the depressions in the rear of the pan I took one each and moved the forward closer to the input and output sensors.
      Anybody out there have any idea besides taking it to the dealer, at 75 bucks for the 5 liters of tranny oil each time I replace something to help me be smarter?
