Hi everybody,

The oil tranmission (with a new seal and plastic pan) on my 760 e66 has been done at 160000km and now 190000km i've a leak.

So i need to make a new oil change transmission. As you know on this serie 7, the pan is in plastic.
With the heat, the plastic pan crack or deforms, that why my transmission leak.

But, the ZF 6hp26 is in place in other model (jaguar, land rover...).
Instead of buying OEM plastic pan, can i buy this metal pan from land rover :

http://www.pieces-range-rover.com/fr/boite-automatique/43198-kit-de-conversion-crepine-de-boite-automatique-zf6hp26-da2142.html

After you, it's compatible with the serie 7 e65? It's the same transmission the 6hp26

Thank in advance :)

Hi,

It's working properly? The metal pan piece of the X5 e53 can be put in place on the serie 7? No specific difficulties?
Do you have a link where i can find these pieces of x5?

The eBay sellers said the metal pan is not the same. So I would not take the chance.

The difference on the landrovers pan is that the original pan same as ours is to tall to come out between the engine and crossmember so it has to be broke out but the newer metal design pan is shallower to allow it to slide back in so it holds I think 2 litre s of oil less which makes it a bit tricky to fill it the proper way

Yes no issues at all, you need a pan and a gasket.
E53 face lifted with N62b44 or b48 engine

You might want to be careful with that E53 pan.
there is a consequence to it being shorter. It holds 1L less when properly filled. I've read that you should check fluid level through hole in pan (not the drain plug). If you use normal technique of filling until side ports runs out, this is 1L too full. go to thectsc.com and read for yourself

Maybe Motronic has some more information. It's mandatory to fill in through the fill plug on the pan or on the side of the gearbox like the Official process ?

There is only one way to fill the tranny- on the passenger side fill in hole.
Make sure you finish filling it in, with running engine.

There is no way to check the level through pan hole. Do you have any real official info??
You might be thinking of 5hp tyranny where you use oil pan to fill and check level.
I installed metal pan 3 times and there is no special instructions, just fill it like with plastic pan.
No magic there;)
