Transmission Service

Transmission Service
    Is your transmission shifting rough? Is it leaking? Does it whine or is it hard to get in to gear? Is something just not feeling right? I think it may be time to pull it out, box it up and send it to us so we can have a look at it! Letting it go will only cost you more money and headache down the road.

    We offer complete service/restoration for your BMW Airhead transmission from 1970-1995. Airhead specialists are a dying breed and its difficult finding a shop that has the Factory BMW Tools or know how to get the job done correctly. We would love to bring your transmission or any other component back to life and assist you with keeping your classic on the road. It's truly our passion. We stock all transmission parts, so turnaround is quite quick. For a standard rebuild, we can have it rebuilt and back in the mail in less than a week. We also stock rebuilt transmissions, so if you need one quickly, we have you covered. (Please call for availability and pricing)

    The first five speed was introduced in 1974 with the /6. This was a huge upgrade to the 4-speeds found on the /5. It was a less complex design that was perfected throughout the years. BMW has discontinued many parts over the years, making it difficult to find the right parts and keep them on the road. We stock a full range of stock gears, performance gears, shafts, gaskets, seals, springs, improved shift kits, and discontinued/no longer available gears. We also offer intermediate shaft rebuilding, which was only offered as a complete unit from BMW.
