Rx300 Gearbox Oil Filter?

Recommended Posts


I was reading Honest-John's column and saw this mentioned for a Mk 1.

Is there such a thing ( gearbox oil filter ) for a Mk 2 or 3?

I believe it is a wire mesh/screen in the Gen II RX's not sure about the later cars tho.

The mesh is much less prone to blocking and is more of a tea strainer than a filter, so has no real maintenance interval.

If for some reason you had to have the gearbox sump off, you'd probably change it just because, otherwise they are usually left alone.

Interestingly, there is a couple of magnets in the bottom of the gearbox sump, unsure why the drain plug isn't magnetic as at least you could of cleaned it when you change ATF fluid... Hey ho!
