Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
When backing, car made a clunk sound and now I can no longer go into reverse. All forward gears still work fine. My vehicle is a 98 Explorer XLT with 120K miles on it.
How much can I expect to pay to have the broken reverse band repaired (parts & labor)?
Most repair shops will only do a complete rebuild. Reason is, they have a guarantee attached, and corporate policy dictates they cannot repair a partial problem. There is some merit to their logic, as in...most transmission (automatic) problems have a source...which may quickly disable or break another band or drive servo if there is no complete rebuild.
As for price, parts alone would only run $50-75, for standard reverse band...labor would still be full price...because they will still charge for removal and installation, and have to remove several other servos and bands to get to the reverse band.

I agree w/ Dave, if u have a part time system, u should not use 4wd on dry pavement, if it's full time 4wd, there are 3 couplings that shift torque to different axles to to allow wheels to spin at different revolutions, and u should not experience the 'driveline wind-up' ,or torque bind. If u do, the system needs to be inspected for problems.

hi depending on how they opperate they could probably charge up to about 2 hours labour... you would be supprised at how much mechanics round off their numbers

I'm showing three bands in the parts book, overdrive, intermediate, and reverse. Nothing listed for first gear.
I can't say for certain first does not use the reverse band, but it is not listed that way in the book.

Tire rotations are done only when engine is in gear.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
