A Standard Transmission Repairer is a person who removes, disassembles, checks, repairs and overhauls an automotive standard transmission and may repair rear axle assemblies.
Standard Transmission Repairers examine vehicles' transmissions to diagnose and estimate repair costs. They will also perform preventive maintenance, inspect completed work and test that a vehicle's performance meets required standards. They may also be required to communicate with customers about what has been done and why, and advise customers on future repair requirements.
These workers are employed by motor vehicle dealers, garages and service stations, as well as by automotive specialty shops. They may also be self-employed.
Working conditions can vary. Some shops are large, bright and well ventilated, while other shops can be less well equipped. Some garages may be cold and drafty. All workers will probably be exposed to noise, vibration, fumes and vehicle emissions, and the work is often dirty. It requires good manual dexterity, good observation abilities and a degree of strength. Some shops may require workers to supply their own hand and power/air tools.
