Gearbox oil and filter change help

Recommended Posts

Hi, just done some work on my 2002 2.5 and saw a leak from the seal on the gearbox. This is one of the jobs I have not yet done. The auto box works fine, but I will need to do this job soon! I would like to know the best place to get a Service kit from (pan, Oil, filter etc).  Any pointers would be gratefully received.

I have seen kits on eBay, but am not sure about the Oil they use. Thank you.

My advice would be to make certain you buy Genuine Parts.

hi

if you check on eBay there are sellers that do genuine zf kits

you will need a new filter/pan, new updated pan screws, mechatronincs sleeve and 7 litres of ZF lifguard 6

genuine zf parts will not leak, but cheap copies will

cheers

Hi all, just an update. Spoke to Mill autoquip today, and they put a service pack together and as they know I am a carer they did it at trade price so £140.59 cheaper than eBay. Booked in on the 15th Nov for this work and MOT. Thanks for your help!

Hi

Hope  there genuine ZF parts, pattern parts are really common to leaking, also not using ZF Oil lifeguard 6 can cause all sorts of problems

hope it comes with some sort of guarantee

cheers

Hi all, just wanted to get the job done this time. I say that as I have seen there is an alloy gearbox pan cover. This costs about £125.00 and the filter kit is £56 when you do an Oil change. Are they any good? Do they fit? Has anyone used one? What would your opinion be?

Despite what Jaguar might advise, I had mine done at 60,000 miles (about 7,000 miles ago). I would recommend that you use genuine Jaguar Parts.

hi

the metal one is landrovers with the same gearbox

unless your thinking of doing some serious off roading , then I would'nt bother

the plastic one work quite well and if you use genuine zf part never leaks, only after market ones do.

also the filter in the plastic one looks larger, the metal one is a smaller serperate filter

cheers

Hi, thank you both for the replies.  Not sure if it was a genuine part or not, but maybe something to think about later. Off-roading maybe not, but the speed hump around here can be killers.
