Questions regarding transmission removal

Recommended Posts

Having problems with transmission noise occurring when in any gear and moving with foot off the gas. Sound goes away when moving and pressing on gas pedal or when pressing on clutch. My research seems to indicate a bad pinion barren housing.

I got an estimate from GBox for $1300 to repair the transmission, not including shipping and handling. They also recommended a new second gear and new shift sleeve while they are working on the transmission. Does this price and additional recommendations seem reasonable? Any other suggestions for companies repairing this problem? I am in Tampa, Florida. Any places near me fix this problem?

If I send the transmission out, how many hours should my independent mechanic charge me for removal and then installation of the repaired transmission?

While the transmission is out, any other suggestions of things to change/fix/update?

My car is a 996 C4 Cabriolet with 87,000 miles.

Sorry of the many questions. Help and advice is appreciated.

Eric

I would also not hesitate to replace the RMS and IMS while the car is apart. I would also plan on at least a new clutch and throw out bearing while you are at it; with those miles it is probably close to needing it anyway. I'd also check the flywheel for the proper amount of "twist" for the same reason; you really do not want to have to go back in there any time soon, so do it correctly the first time.

Sounds reasonable to me versus buying a used or new transmission.

If I send the transmission out, how many hours should my independent mechanic charge me for removal and then installation of the repaired transmission?

I'm not sure what official book time is but I read estimates between $600 and $1000 depending on hourly rates to remove and reinstall the transmission.

While the transmission is out, any other suggestions of things to change/fix/update?

AOS, LNE IMS bearing, RMS seal, clutch kit and inspect flywheel as JFP suggests.
