I'm French and I own an old Volvo V70 car whose automatic gearbox sounds seriously tired.
In Europe an specially in France, automatic gearbox is not usual as it may be, say in USA, so it's not easy to find qualified service about it, and even less easy to buy involved spare parts (usually brand's representant propose only standard exchange, and it frequently costs more than the vehicle actual value!).
By chance I encountered a mechanic having real skills in this domain: he claims to perform the repair, and listed me which parts he needs for that. He also pointed me to its preferred supplier (Transtar), and I got its catalog, where I easily located the involved pages for my gearbox.
So I'm now trying to identify the parts he described, but here is the point: from the french description, looking at the catalog I'm not sure at all to look at the right part names in english. My (simply usual) English doesn't cover this particular domain, and Google translation doesn't seem to be reliable.
The mechanic said he needs:
- a complete set of joints: I guess it should be seals but the catalog includes sealing rings, metal clad seals, axle seals...
- a complete set of plateaux : I think of plates but I find friction plates, steel plates and pressure plates
- a complete set of disques : but I find no disk at all
Is there a chance that someone can identify which parts are so needed from this catalog extract (only 9 pages), knowing that my gearbox is AW 55-50 and my car is from 2001?
