Remanufacturing Process

We are an ISO 9001:2008 Quality rated company. Our remanufacturing process is synonymous to the latest processes and fixes worldwide .

Most of our remanufactured components are tested with specialised imported equipment:

  • Full Electronic Valvebody Tester
  • Dyno Transmission Tester
  • Hydraulic circuit tester
  • Numerous diagnostic scanners

Root Cause Analysis is the process that differentiates this successful company from other competitors. Through ongoing research and development we know the weak points on each transmission as well as the latest modification and fixes that should be installed on the remanufactured units.

Our aim is to let our remanufactured units out live the ORIGINAL transmission which was fitted to the vehicle. Feedback of units lasting more than 300 000 km after a complete rebuild is not uncommon.

The rebuilding process starts with a full diagnostic failure report. Here we need to know what fault codes are present on the vehicle e.g. symptoms presented or driveability .We make use of electronic scanners and diagnostic reports from the different dealerships. This information is critical to transmission rebuilding.

All major components of a vehicle are interconnected to each other via the CAN BUS system. This is where the engine communicates with the transmission. The ABS and speed sensors are also interlinked to the system.

A problem in one of these three systems might affect proper transmission operation.

  • Input and Load Sensors such as the Throttle Position Sensor and Mass Air Flow Sensors are of critical importance
  • Faulty sensors and faulty electronic components may in many cases cause different transmission problems
  • On the output you have electronic pressure control solenoids, pulse with modulated pressure solenoids and shift solenoids.

Once the technician has done all the tests on the above mentioned components and he is assured that all manage systems are working, the rebuilding process starts.

1.     The transmission is removed and relocated to the designated transmission specialists.

2.     The torque converter is also be sent to the torque converter rebuilding section.

3.     The transmission is stripped to the bare casing with all the loose components opened for inspection.

4.     The components are then cleaned in a special heated washing machine.

5.     After the cleaning process the transmission returns to the technician for final inspection.

6.     All components will be inspected for wear, cracks etc. Hard working solenoids such as the pulse modulated solenoids and pressure solenoids is replaced as part of the standard operating procedure.

7.     After the valve body test is completed it will return to the technician.

8.     The technician then proceeds with the rebuilding process.

9.     As part of the standard procedure al the wearable components are replaced. This includes:

  • All rubber an sealing components
  • All friction and steel plates (Clutch packs)
  • All Bands
  • Bushes
  • Thrust washers
  • Filters

10.   The transmission is then rebuilt to the original specification. Each transmission receives a designated Job Number with all the history recorded. This number will be stamped with the rebuilders personal details.

11.   The transmission is then relocated to the test room where a complete Dyno Test is performed. Pressure tests and readings are documented and compared.

12.   After final inspection the transmission is crated, sealed and ready for delivery or installation.
