    My best friend and I tackled the project of rebuilding his AX5 tranny in his jeep. We were told that it wouldnt be that difficult. Well we were in over our heads. I was wouldering were I could find a step by step manual to complete the rebuild. Having trouble getting 5th gear off the shaft, and the retainer or whatever you call it off the other end. WE NEED MAJOR HELP, eventhough it is a jeep. This is his DD too!

    Not many jeep people here. I'd reccomend getting an ATSG manual specific to that transmission. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Those walked me through a couple auto tranny rebuilds and taught me a lot.

    If you'v got a library near by, call and ask if they have the factory service manual for whatever year/vehicle that tranny came out of.

    From what I've seen ALL aftermarket manuals are essentially dumbed down/cutup factory manuals, condensed to cover more years than they should.

    I'd recommend gettin' on the jeep part of the forum on pirate 4x4, but be sure and search for what you're looking for first, or they'll eat you alive /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I think I have done one or so in the past, but dont remember a thing about it. Why dont you just take it to a shop to finish/start it?
