Technical issues and repair guidelines

The repair kit of gaskets and seals is ordered for reassembly of 722.5. In addition to typical overhaul procedures for this transmissions (replacement of gaskets and seals), repair specialists also replace the oil filter. The overhaul certainly includes repair of the torque converter caused by wear-out of friction linings of actively operating lock-up clutch (leaking pump seal is the sign of wear-out). In many cases, the repair consists of replacement of current pump seal and the pump bushing.

Transmission specialists also frequently have to replace all friction components. The package Reverse (piston) is replaced quite often because of damaged springs (because of old age) which are harmful for the whole unit.

The electrical part in the 722.5 unit (as well as hard parts) is quite reliable and its service life is compatible to the car's lifespan. Automatic transmission of 5-th series endures harsh operation conditions without any serious problems in contrast to following generations of 5- and 7-speed automatic transmissions 722.6 and 722.9.
