Grinding AX-15

My trans in my '92 Wrangler grinds when shifting quickly into 4th gear. I have rebuilt a few T-5's for my Mustang with no problems, and I was wondering if this trans is a harder or easier than the T-5. And do you need a press? As far as a Haynes manual goes, it looks like I just need a gear puller.

Try switching to synthetic gear oil. Smooths things out quite a bit.

Re: Grinding AX-15

The first time you go into an AX-15, it may look difficult. The reason is for the shift rails. These have to be removed in sequence to properly remove the interlock pins. However, the mainshaft can be disassembled without removing the rails. After you seperate the case halves and clamp the center section in a vise, just remove the two 10mm bolts that retain the 1st./2nd and 3rd/4th shift forks to the rails, and pull the forks off with the mainshaft.

A steering wheel puller will work for 5th gear, but I recommend a press for seperating the mainshaft.
