XC GXL auto info needed

hello,

I recently bought an XC GXL 250 auto. It only cost me $1.00 on ebay. The bloke i got it off said all the tranny fluid has leaked out the output shaft seal over a 6 month period. I have a couple of XA/XB service manuals and the car is 200 kays away so i cant just go out and have a look.

My questions are;

Being a 250 would the gearbox be a C4 or BW35??

On either of these can the seal be changed in car??

Its only going to be my bush hack....... I am sick of fixing toyotas.

Thanks,


Russell.

Re: XC GXL auto info needed

Its more than likely a BW 35. C4s where not that common.

front bar looks good. I just got rid of a grille and headlights that would have fitted.

Looks like a c4 since you can just see the vacuum line to the modulator on the r.h side and the speedo cable coming in the left side.. Either way the rear seal is the same for borg warner35 or c4.

yes you can change the seal with the tranny in place, its not too hard. Use TQF fluid.
