The 5-speed automatic transmission ZF 5HP24 was designed for powerful 6 and 8-cylinder engines (diesel and 2.4 - 4.5 liter IC-engines) in AWD and RWD high-priced Audi and BMW models (5-th and 7-th series Х5...). It is an intermediate transmission unit between famous 5HP19 and powerful 5HP30. It had been used since 1995 up to 2005.

Technical issues and repair guidelines

If this transmission is handed in for repair, transmission specialists have to change ATF, replace not only filter and numerous spare parts, but also the input drum of the clutch package А, which has problems with a circlip. In most cases, the input drum of the clutch package А is rebuilt rather than replaced with a new one. The whole kit of frictions is replaced in case of burnt oil.

In terms of design, the whole package А is considered to be a weak spot. The number of friction components and their diameters were increased several times in the process of manufacture, but still this package is the first to get burnt when transmitted torque reaches the maximum.

The second typical problem of this transmission (in addition to the drum А replacement) is the hub bearing (В). Vibrations caused by overloads damage the bearing and then the hub. One of the main causes for this problem is related to fluid shortages. Almost each overhaul (if the overhaul kit is not ordered) involves replacement of seals. Another typical problem for “old” 5HP24 is the one-way clutch F.

Old and overheated cars (older than 10 years) often require replacement of wiring in solenoids.Solenoids are the main spare parts among electrical components of this transmission. The torque converter is a separate issue of automatic transmission.The torque converter is considered to be the soft spot for transmissions of powerful vehicles, but in case with this transmission this problem is especially vivid. The 5HP24 unit is the second transmission among the most frequently repaired ZF transmissions. This transmission is also included in the world top 5 transmissions for overhaul coming after 5L40 and Audi 01P/N/M family.
