Im in the process of doing the same thing on my YJ. Got the collar from consolidated transmission, very fast shipping. Turns out the genius that owned the jeep before me welded the 5th gear snap ring to the output shaft,needless to say it didn't work and made a mess of things. Also ordered a rebuild kit of Ebay cause second gear has been grinding and thought I might as well fix it while I was in there. Luckily I have a reliable bicycle to get me back and forth while I fix it

ok I know this is an old post, but we are having trouble with the 5th gear in our ax-5 trans. I read this whole post and I see it gives where you can get the parts etc.... however I am having a very hard time finding them. Consolidated Transmissions I can't find and they don't answer the phones. Can anyone give me an actual website or phone number that works for finding the parts. I have searched and come up with nothing. thanks all

Is there a gasket that will have to be replaced when you split the tranny? Or is it just sealed with silicone?

Check post #9 (qouted above) from this present thread. I doubt the numbers have changed, but if they have, please post in your findings.

Max- Collar and clip is finally in hand. I also bought two dead AX5 transmissions to use as a reference/practice units before I open my good one in the Jeep.

10W-30 instead of gear oil?

The upgrade in smell is worth the change alone. Gear oil (sulphur) smells sooo bad. Just thinking about it again... ugh.

EDIT
Search function is your friend as 10W-30 is the correct oil to use. Thanks again Max.

I just had a similar problem. I was driving down the freeway in 5th and suddenly there is this loud metal banging sound. I turned off the AC..nothing. I grabbed the shifter and its vibrating really badly. I downshifted to 4th...noise stops. Every other gear works but 5th sound like gears are not engaging. This write up sounds like my solution.


Thanks for the info Max.


But it seems like it would be easier to simply remove the transmission by unbolting the bellhousing. Am I wrong?

If not, why is it necessary to remove the shifter, transfer case shifter, and the shifter tower from the gearbox?
