Morning guys
Anyone know what the part no is for the filer in the auto box and where
exactly it is.
Mt T could not find it nor see it on his PC.

Don't know the part number but its a wire mesh screen thingy that sits
inside the autobox sump. You have to remove the gearbox sump to change it.
Every time I've asked about it I've been told not to bother changing it
so I haven't.

Hi John,
There is not a serviceable filter as such, but a strainer (35303-60010).
When doing a major service it is worth dropping the sump on the auto box
and cleaning it out a bit as well as cleaning off the strainer.

Hi Julian
Thanks for that. The reason I ask is that im thinking about changing the ATF
to fully synthetic and was advised to change the filter.
But if there is no filter well I guess I cant change it then.
I assume that there is/ should be no gung in there like there would be in
the engine because there is no combustion by products. But then you know
what they say about assunmpion is the mother of all ---- --- and in my case
it would be. Would you believe that the guy in Mr T didn't know that it was
possible to get fully synthetic for the gear box..

Hi John,
It really depends on the condition of the box and how often it has had oil
changes.
You might get oily lumps of gunk that aren't too much of an issue
espescially since you are changing the oil, however if you start finding
lumps of metal in there, then panic!
Also from memory I think there are a couple of magnets actually in the pan -
these will also need to be checked and cleaned.
It reminds me of when I changed the gearbox oil of my first car, a Triumph
Spitfire - I knew the synchro was a bit chunky but when I changed the oil
the magnet in the drain plug had two ball bearings and a lot of iron filings
stuck to it.
Needless to say, being a poor student at the time (doing Agricultural
Engineering) I just shoved in some thicker oil probably from one of the
drums in the college workshop and the gearbox was fine for then next 18
months before selling it!
