Support

Transmission repair:

ZF Services offers the necessary genuine spare parts and preventive maintenance.

Transmission diagnosis / Fleet diagnosis / Electronics:

If the transmission electronics on a vehicle need to be checked at some stage, the service team has the necessary expertise and is always on hand. All the electronically controlled ZF products are taken into consideration. Faults can be detected early on and the downtime of the vehicle is minimized. The ZF-Testman diagnosis system is able to measure it all – the route's topography as well as the driving style. Consequently, the fleet owner and driver can benefit from the optimization potential available.

Service

Transmissions / Exchange units:

A ZF exchange unit constitutes a fast, low-cost and ecological alternative to conventional repairs. ZF remanufactures manual, automated and automatic transmissions for passenger cars, commercial vehicles and construction machinery at central remanufacturing locations. For industrially remanufactured transmissions, ZF offers the same quality standards that apply to its volume production transmissions.

Additionally, customers benefit from technical further development, as this is integrated into the remanufacturing process. ZF provides a warranty of up to 2 years for exchange units.

Worldwide availability

Exchange units are available worldwide via the extensive network of more than 650 Service Centers. Thanks to regular certification, we offer the same high quality and service standards worldwide.

Genuine spare parts

The ZF Services logistics centers stock over 100,000 spare parts for all transmission types to ensure each transmission operates perfectly. Spare parts are produced with the same manufacturing processes as our volume production components. They are subject to the same quality and inspection processes.

Technical and design-related changes or renewals are also included. ZF Services warrants spare parts provision for up to 15 years after volume production phaseout. And even longer for vintage cars.

Transmission oils

All ZF transmissions are filled as standard with semi-synthetic or fully synthetic premium grade oil ZF-LIFEGUARDFLUID. Optimized lubrication properties reduce fuel consumption and, in turn, CO2 emissions. Under normal conditions, the oil lasts a vehicle's entire life cycle, but it can age prematurely in case of excessive loads – such as from frequent use of trailers or quick, sporty driving. An oil change should therefore be recommended after 80,000 to 120,000 kilometers or eight years.

ZF Services also makes the OEM quality of ZF transmission oils available to the free spare-parts market.
