Shift from Getrag America to Component Manufacturing Specialists (CRS)
Getrag had shifted the remanufacture of its WM5G1 and WM6G1 gearboxes from its Getrag America facility to an outside firm, Component Remanufacturing Specialists, Inc. (CRS). Apparently, Getrag was supplying CRS with the necessary parts to repair these units all along. Therefore, there existed a "well-oiled" mechanism for getting parts out of Germany. Mr. Donnelson stated that CRS was willing to sell parts directly - either to dealerships or to individuals.
This was a win-win situation because CRS has a lot of experience with these parts which resulted in rapid and accurate order fulfillment. I would suggest however, that each of us do our homework before calling CRS so we don't expend too much their time troubleshooting our gearbox problems over the phone. Remote diagnosis is something that they aren't set up for, and may cause them to have seconds thoughts about selling direct.

Parts and Prices
When ordering parts, be sure to have:
- The model number off the transaxle bell housing
- The month and year your car was made from the door jam
Knowing these will help ensure that you get the right parts. Some parts are different even if the transaxles were made in the same year.
Both 1st and 2nd have 3 rings each. The blocking ring is the one that mainly wears out, but there may be damage on the others. Or you may want to replace them all as they don't cost too much. 1st and 2nd gear each has its own separate set of rings. The remaining speeds (3rd, 4th, 5th, and reverse) just have one synchro ring each.
|Part ID||Qty||Description||Price ($)|
|C46||1||1st/2nd Outer Ring||31.13|
|C47||1||1st/2nd Blocking Ring||15.03|
|C48||1||1st/2nd Inner Ring||23.93|
|C45||2||1st/2nd Set of Three Rings||70.09|
|C11||1||3rd/4th Synchro Ring||22.95|
|C63||1||5th Synchro Ring||65.40|
|C74||1||Reverse Synchro Ring||68.00|
There are no actual case gaskets. Case joints are filled with sealant, Mitsubishi part number: MD997740.
|Part ID||Qty||Description||Price ($)|
|B06||1||Output Shaft Seal||10.25|
|B07||1||Driveshaft Seal, Driver Side||4.60|
|B31||1||Driveshaft Seal, Passenger Side||4.40|
|B32||1||Oil Fill Plug||1.18|
|B33||1||Oil Fill Plug Gasket||0.05|
|B52||1||Oil Drain Plug||3.08|
|B53||1||Oil Drain Plug Gasket||0.05|
|B59||1||Rear Plug (Input Shaft Plug)||1.18|
The rubber plug in the back is part B59, and it costs $1.18. I don't know what purpose it serves; it's not a drain, filler, or breather. I may be able to figure it out when I pull mine apart. There is a gasket ring shown on the drawing (B60), but CRS doesn't stock it. They say to coat it with Loctite before assembling. I'd replace it because, due to the fact it is rubber, it has likely deteriorated.
Update 8/21/03 from Bret Brinkmann
Order part number B66 (input shaft cap/seal). This is an important seal that you can't reuse because you have to destroy it to remove it.
