Book your service


The gearbox of your car is a complex network of shafts, seals, bearings, and different types of gears. It alters a vehicle’s torque to the speed and vice versa depending on the need. However, over time, your car’s gearbox may wear out and must be repaired or replaced to provide adequate safety and performance. Overdrive MOT & Service Centre has the best team of experts that can provide your car with an excellent gearbox replacement Batley.

What is a gearbox replacement?

The process of repairing and replacing some essential components inside your car’s gearbox like seal, shims, bearings, and gears is known as gearbox replacement. Generally, our experts conduct a visual inspection of your vehicle’s gearbox to check the overall condition of your gear’s flexibility, backlash, and bearing settings. It is done to ensure that your car does not incur any transmission problems while driving.

After a test drive and the visual inspection is done, your car’s gearbox is dismantled to replace the shafts and bearings that support the gears inside the box. Finally, our experts use advanced tools to replace the various types of gears inside your car’s gearbox.
