Volvo XC90 Gearbox Repair

Volvo XC90 Gearbox Repair

The Ware automatic gearbox specialists, Stephens Engineering, recently carried out 2006 Volvo XC90 gearbox repair.

The 2006 Volvo XC90 is a popular four wheel drive automatic and unlike the earlier XC90 vehicles, the 2006 Volvo XC90 has a six speed gearbox. Pre-2006 the Volvo XC90 had a 5 speed gearbox. The 2006 Volvo XC90 gearbox repair was needed as the 2006 XC90 had lost third gear and was slipping through the other forward gears.  The Volvo XC90 was ready for a complete overhaul in the Stephens Engineering workshop as the Volvo had covered a hundred and ten thousand miles. The Volvo XC90 5 speed gearbox and the Volvo XC90 6 speed gearbox are both a very reliable automatic transmission unit.

To carry out the 2006 Volvo XC90 gearbox repair in the Stephens workshop, the Volvo transmission and transfer box was removed and the Volvo XC90 automatic gearbox was dismantled.  All the components within the Volvo’s transmission unit were checked as a result of the vehicle’s mileage and all the clutches and sub-units were replaced.  Both the 2006 Volvo XC90 and the earlier Volvo XC90 5 speed gearbox can suffer from leaks and solenoid failure and so a new valve body assembly was fitted to the 2006 XC90. When either Volvo XC90 model is brought into the workshop, we always fit a new valve body assembly to avoid further damage caused by leaks and failure of the solenoids.  The Volvo XC90 gearboxes work very hard and therefore, the specialist automatic transmission technicians at Stephens Engineering want to ensure the gearbox problems are fully rectified prior to installation.  Prior to the installation of the Volvo XC90 automatic gearbox, the Volvo gearbox oil cooler is hot flushed, for efficient and effective cleaning and finally, the Volvo XC90 torque converter was replaced.

Software updates for the 2006 XC90 were checked and to check the 2006 Volvo XC90 gearbox repair had been carried out successfully, the Volvo XC90 underwent a ten mile run with final checks which confirmed the XC90 gearbox repair had been successful and the Volvo automatic transmission was running well.
