$350 is awesome. I should have tools back in stock to ship end of next week. Tool worked that easy on one that had been setting for over a year with the tub completely rusted to the shaft. It's really awesome to not have to worry about weather the tub will come out. It's well worth the $

I did a Cabrio yesterday. I was thinking of your tool as I reached in to pull the tub up. Lucky for me it came right out.

Yep. When you have one on your truck, it's nice piece of mind, but you hope you don't need it. The last two I did came right out, didn't need it. The 5 before it I was glad I had it:) it's nice insurance!

The bearings in the trans covers are the same as the top bearing in the cabrio.

  Is that a 6006 bearing? Looks like 6008 in photo but Cabrio top bearings are 6006.

6006 in the photo & 6006 in the bottom also but I've never ran up on that one being bad.

I don't get enough of these to make it worth going through the rebuild.   But it's good to know.  Next one I get,   I will save the tranny and give it a shot for the hell of it.     Thanks for the info.    Problem here is,   lot of people paid 400 for machine.    They don't even want to put in a control,   and when you tell them tranny,  they say they will buy a new machine.     

I do alot of Cabrio's - that tub tool would be handy.    I have never failed to get one out yet,   my secret weapon is JD Rustbuster.     But,  I'm sure I'll catch one eventually.     I've settled on 340 for bearing job,   haven't had one person turn me down at that price yet.      Lot's of time,   if they have old style shocks without cups and they are getting alot of UL errors,   I suggest they replace those too and that no extra labor charge,  just price of shocks.     that brings total to over 400,  but again,   most also replace the shocks.      I keep 2 sets of bearings and 2 sets of shocks on truck.     You want to do the job right away before they change their minds.   Strike fast

I need to replace the Bearing inside the gearcase on a Vertical Modular Washer (MVWC400XW3) and need to know where to order the bearing's?
Also, do you only replace the upper or lower bearing in the gearcase?

Just replace the transmission
Too expensive - New Transmission cost $250
Do you know if this is the correct bearing for Model MVWC400XW3 http://www.vxb.com/page/bearings/PROD/30mm/Kit112

Washer isn't worth $5 when brand new. I'd trash it :)

Rockinrobin that's the right bearings
Thank You!
I'm replacing the Tub Seal due to a small leak and need to replace the upper bearing but may also replace the lower bearing if not too much trouble.
Question's:
1) Is the 6006 bearing the same for both the upper & lower?
2) Do I need to apply grease to the inner edge or outer edge of the bearing's?
3) Do I need to put oil back into the transmission pan?
If yes, what kind of oil and can I find it at the auto part store?

JDM i tried to take one of this trannys apart and i tore the hell up of it. Whats the secret of taking it apart apart from taking the revits off. I have been on here trying begging for you to let go of the secret but to no avail. Thanks and i hope you find it in your heart to come on here and let all of us on the secret.LOL

I'm sure I'm missing something, but I tried to take one of these apart, and after drilling out the punch rivets found it still held together by the bearings pressed into each end.  How do you get that apart without tearing it up?

I personally will probably never repair one of these, but it would be nice if someone that knows how to service the VMW gearcase would make a "How to" with a video or at least text and photos. Where the heck is JW webster when you need him. His videos used to be entertaining.  ;)
