Transmission Bearing

1 post in this topic

Welp it sounds like I have a bad transmission bearing.  I took it to the dealer and had a tech ride along, he confirmed what I suspected.  When I called about a warranty fix they said I'd have to provide receipts for the fluids from previous services, since I did the changes myself.  The car is at 96K, this is the only issue I've had.  I don't have the receipts from all of my changes, so far only found one.  I'd love to tell them the reason I won;t go the dealer for service but that won;t get me anywhere...

Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has dropped the tranny for bearing replacement and how involved that process is, whether it is worth just getting a new lower-mileage 5-spd or dealing with it myself.

Comments and advice appreciated.
