In situ gear selector housing removal

Hi all!

I'm tracking down a transmission fluid leak that seems to be coming from somewhere on the upper portion of the transmission. Is it possible to remove the gear selector housing on an LT77 in a 110 without dropping the transmission, i.e. just remove the shift cover and center console/cover instead?

Thanks.

You mean the bit on top of the main 'box that the shifter attaches to?

yes, 4 (or 6?) allen screws, or 8mm bolts, depending on age, will release the top unit.

you just need to pull up the rubber gearstick gaiter and the foam soundproof bit to get access to it.

When i was in the Army, we used to have to do this a lot, as some of the older rovers, the grub screw would come loose on the shifter resulting in a floppy non-engaging gear stick.

Jamie,

I know that screw - it came out on mine about five miles from home . But I think what you're referring to is what the manual calls out as the gear lever housing. I'm talking about the thing that the gear lever housing sits on, that looks to bolt to the extension housing.

No you have to remove the transmission to pull the extension housing off. Not a chore to be done insitu.
