AW55-50SN Case Repair

The AW55-50&51SN / RE5F22A transmissions used in Volvos, Saturns, Maximas, and Saabs are spitting the planetary bushings out of the planets. One of the reasons this is happening is because of wear in the Aisin Warner cases. The bore of the outer race for the drive gear becomes worn and allows excessive movement in the gear train. See picture at right. We repair the case with a steel sleeve back to original dimensions.

With the lose of parallel between the shafts, the side loads on the bushings lead to bushing failure.

The picture on the right shows the transfer gear hub poised above the splineded are where the wear is. This hub is held in the case by a narrow snap ring that can be a real pain to get out.
