VW T3/T25/Vanagon Syncro gearbox detective work. Part 3

This is the last in the series covering the aftermath of a serious gearbox failure. In this episode the box is put back together and we get up close and personal with all the parts of a locking differential.

I sincerely hope that none of you ever end up in the situation that brought about the creation of this video series, but if you are unlucky enough to experience something similar then hopefully these movies will at least give you a bit of an insight into what may have gone wrong and what is required to put it right.

Here’s the second episode in the three part series covering the strip and re-build of a VW Transporter Syncro gearbox.
In this edition we get up close and personal with the failure that caused a complete loss of drive in 4th gear. (It’s not pretty….)

Once again thanks to Aidan Talbot for allowing us to film this and broadcast it to the world. It’s an amazing insight into the workings that go on inside a Syncro transmission.

This is definitely a video for all you Syncro nerds out there…

A big thanks to Aidan Talbot the UK’s Syncro gearbox rebuild guru who allowed Alan@Campervanculture into his workshop in LLanfyllin, Wales for a while to talk us all through what happens inside your gearbox when it stops working.

“After suffering a significant gearbox failure I needed to get a working gearbox back together and here’s the story about what happened…”
