5 speed manual transmission rebuild

Who here has broken down the 5 speed manual transmission? I need to do something about the nasty gear whine coming from mine and Id like to take care of it myself. I am wondering what if any special service tools are needed.

I am not certain but I may be a pioneer on this one, that is I am the first person on this board to crack open the FS5R30A 5 spd manual transmission found in a Pathfinder. I should look around in the Z forum. The 300 used the same transmission.

I have on order a rebuild kit and synchronizers for the transmission. Ill be tearing into it late next week if all goes accroding to schedule. I will document the process with plenty of digital photos for anyone who would like to see them.

After a closer review of the service manual, very few special tools are needed. Several of the tools are brass drifts, pin punches and bearing pullers. I am certain that I already own everything that is required to dis-assemble and re-assemble the transmission.

I think that I found the same kit that you are seeing on E-bay. Be aware that the kit is for the 4 cylinder 5 speed manual transmission and not the 5 speed manual transmission used in the Pathfinder.

Hey, the guys that sell that kit are great. They include all bearings and seals but you have to pay an extra 36 bucks for the synchros. You do get the ball cards for free, though. You are right in that it is for a FS5w71c, but I am sure they sell the other kit as well. I did not go through ebay, though. I gave em a call and it was at my door in less than a week. The tools needed for the rebuild other than standard sockets and wrenches are as follows.

Brass (soft) hammer,
hacksaw,
good set of drift punches,
cold chisel,
HEAVY DUTY set of snap ring pliers, no bullshit
Long arm/adjustable gear/bearing puller (I adapted the Autozone rental)
various sizes of pipe to place bearings with
grey silicone sealant
permanent marker
~200 ziplock bags
Illustrated parts breakdown
system for numbering the parts
I also had a bowl of 75w handy to dip the bearings in before install.

Check out www.geocities.com/aaronford1/nissan for some pics

I found that the stock bearings had a cover over each side making it difficult for lube to freely traverse the bearing. The new bearings had no such cover. They look alot heavier as well. The bearing that failed mine was the front output shaft bearing located in the adapter plate. I found a broken shift fork while I was in there as well.

I have a fs5w71c and the factory service manual does not correctly identify my synchronizer hubs so I have no idea how they go. Any help/pictures of your fs5w71c tranny internals would be appreciated.

They both have the right angle cutout on one face, but then on the other face one is chamfered and the other is flat.

Now it the manual they show the 3rd and 4th hub as having the cutout and chamfer on the front side and the back is also chamfered.

Then the 1st and 2nd hub has a right angle cutout on the front with a chamfer on the rear face.


Also, just to make sure they do refer to the "front" of the tranny as the motor side of the tranny, correct?
