Rebuilding classic VW gearboxes is our speciality.

It does require specialised tools, skills, knowledge and patience. We are using correct, accurate and official VW tools that are unique and necessary to VW gearbox range. Many rebuilders just simply do not have those or use potentially less accurate, home-made ones that may result in incorrect adjustments and ultimately slow gearbox failure.


It is mostly impossible to gauge condition of the gearbox without full disassembly. We will first clean and inspect all parts for wear and damage and be able then to give you accurate quote for repair.


We will aim to rebuild your gearbox to as close as it is possible to factory specification while at the same time keeping the cost down. We will discuss all the options and costs available to you.


We can upgrade Ring and Pinion and gearsets with many different ratios, supply and fit Limited Slip Differentials, fit thrust and oiling plates, convert early T25 gearboxes to fit Baywindow and much more.


We always have few gearboxes rebuilt and ready to go. Get in touch if you in the hurry, we can part exchange your old gearbox for rebuilt one. We can also buy any other classic VW gearbox cores you have.
