Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know there is a problem with the automatic transmission in my car?

If you notice any of the following there is a good chance your transmission requires some attention:

  • oil leaking from transmission
  • abnormal noise while driving
  • engine revving on gear changes
  • engine revving higher then normal and the car doesn’t seem to be moving as fast as it should
  • harsh gear changes
  • slow to engage drive or reverse
  • transmission seems to be stuck in one gear

If you notice any of these symptoms you should have your car inspected by a Bayford Technician as soon as possible.

What makes a Bayford Reconditioned unit better than others?

We have been reconditioning automatic transmissions, manual gearboxes, diffs and steering components for over 35 years. The experience we have gained is unbeatable, we have evolved with the automotive industry and remained well-informed of the latest technology used in all modern models.

In additions, all parts used in a reconditioned unit by us will be covered under our warranty.

What is the difference between a repair and an overhaul?

A repair is when we fix only the cause of the problem. An overhaul means completely dismantling the component, replacing all soft parts such as seals, gaskets, bushes and frictions, replacing or repairing any damaged hard parts like pumps, drums or gearsets, and then reassembling to spec.

Can you supply me with a quote prior to commencing work?

We can supply quotes on our change over units over the phone. However, in the case that we can’t do this, or you wish to carry out the repairs on your own, we would not be able to give you an exact price. This is because we need to assess your vehicle to determine the actual fault.

Can you do the job at a lower cost?

There are cheaper and lower quality parts available which will reduce cost, but they will also reduce the life of your reconditioned component. Instead, we offer a two year/40,000km warranty and only use high quality parts to ensure our reconditioned components last the warranty period and beyond.

Do you have a towing service available?

We can arrange a tow if required.
