Have you ever wondered how the power generated in your car’s engine is transferred to the wheels? Inside your vehicle, a transmission allows the power from the engine to be transferred to the drive shaft, which then redirects it to the driving wheels. This feat of engineering is done by your car’s gearbox, employing a set of gears that can be shifted to change the speed and torque. The gears in the gearbox are rearranged in various patterns to differ the speed while maintaining the engine performance. Sometimes, you may require a Gearbox Repair in Dubai to address issues that cause transmission issues.

While most transmission issues require only minor repairs, bigger more complex issues may require a gearbox repair in Dubai. Gearbox overhaul or transmission rebuild is a major procedure done at our auto repair shop in Dubai. Our skilled luxury car mechanics can expertly remove the gearbox from the body of the vehicle and rebuild or replace it as required.

When Do We Recommend A Gearbox Repair and Overhaul?

A gearbox repair and overhaul is a systematic process that helps restore a gearbox to optimal functionality and performance. At our car repair and service center, we recommend a gearbox repair and overhaul only if it’s necessary for greater reliability of your vehicle’s transmission system.
