I had a leak from the transmission and while the repair shop was fixing that, the discovered that a plastic retainer inside a bearing race (differential bearing) was broken. They ordered that new bearing and when the removed the "differential bearing retaining cap" (their description, not mine, although it seems right) it came apart in two pieces( it's supposed to be one solid piece ) upon searching for a part number they discovered that none of the maintenance diagrams show this broken piece and that it doesn't have a part number. Contacting local hyundai dealers (perhaps because of a lack of patience or language barriers) they haven't been able to locate a replacement part ( number unknown) and have said that for the need of this piece, I'll have to buy a whole transmission to replace mine! OUCH, for what is probably a $20-50 at most, part, I have to spend $1800 for another transmission? Please help me locate this part or the part number so I don't have to buy a new transmission. I have images of the part, it's a pretty clean break and when put together it looks like a recognizable piece.

Do you
have the same problem?

There is no part number for the bearing cap. It is only service with the case. Thats why you need a trans.

I suggest a juk yard for a case or a trans shop for a case. It may be cheaper than buying a new unit

Also, they said that the "last 8" numbers on the VIN were important, they are. 1U223096. Does that help?

And yes, to my surprise, I discovered that this is a Mitsubishi engine would perhaps Mitsubishi be able to help find this part or the case with this piece in it. That would be less than a new Oro even a rebuilt tranny. Yes?

OKAY

CJ MEDEVAC AGAIN. IMMA JEEP CJ KINDA GUY, UP ON THE OLDER STUFF, NOT TOO MUCH INTO THE NEWER STUFF.I CAN "SEARCH" WELL, AND AM VERY MECHANICAL. JUST NEED TO GET MY NOSE ON THE TRAIL

LET'S REVIEW A TAD

" the discovered that a plastic retainer inside a bearing race (differential bearing) was broken. They ordered that new bearing and when the removed the "differential bearing retaining cap" (their description, not mine, although it seems right) it came apart in two pieces( it's supposed to be one solid piece ) "

WE TALK ABOUT A "PLASTIC RETAINER". AND THEN A "DIFF BEARING RETAINING CAP"

ARE THESE. TWO. SEPARATE BROKE THINGEES. OR IS THE RETAINING CAP PLASTIC?

JUST TO GET ON TRACK WITH WHAT I'M GONNA BE LOOKIN ' FOR

I GRABBED A PIC AND CIRCLED A PARTMY PIC IS THE REAR WHEEL DRIVE VERSION OF WHAT "THEY" CRAMMED INTO A SMALL CASE AND INCLUDED A TRANSMISSION AS WELL IN YOUR CAR

THEN THEY PROBABLY TURNED IT ALL SIDEWAYS TOO

. WHICH BRINGS UP ANOTHER QUESTION

IS THIS "ONE OF A PAIR?"

IS IT THE ONE. UP FRONT. AT THE REAR. DRIVER'S SIDE (LEFT HAND DRIVE). OR PASSENGER SIDE?

IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE IT'S A "MIRROR IMAGE" OF IT'S MATE. MADE L OR R

OR IS IT AN "EXACT TWIN" OF ITS MATE AND THEY ARE 100% INTERCHANGEABLE. EVEN "FLIP-ABLE"?

SOMETIMES.......THE GOOFBALL GUY GETS LUCKY AND WINDS UP WITH THE BEAUTY QUEEN

OR EVEN AN OLD DOG GETS A BONE EVERY NOW AND THEN

I DID WELL IN A SIMILAR SITUATION............SEE WHERE I "PIPED IN" ON PAGE 1 OF THIS POST

http://www.2carpros.com/questions/1968-chevrolet-camaro-need-help-drive-train-issues-believe-clutch-transmission-im

SINCE THE OTHER HALF OF THE CIRCLE IS IN THE CASTING

IF THE REPLACEMENT IS A BIT TOO SMALL---MAYBE SOME SHIM MATERIAL TO BUILD UP BETWEEN THE FACES SO IT SEATS FLAT W/ NO TENSION ON THE "BAND" OR THE 90 DEGREE TURN AT THE BOLT ?

SHOULD IT BE TOO BIG---"FIGURE 8s" ON SOME AGGRESSIVE SANDPAPER--TILL YOU GET CLOSE---THEN GO A LITTLE MILDER W/ THE GRIT

EVEN THE LINE BORING IS SO PRECISE WITH ROBOTS AND AUTOMATION---MIGHT BE A PERFECT FIT WITH NO MODIFYING NEEDED

LIKE THEY ALWAYS TOLD US IN THE 1ST RANGER BATTALION..."IF YOU AIN'T CHEATIN'.....YOU AIN'T TRYIN'!

Good morning. Some great insight, I'll try and answer all questions as best I can.

First - the case number is UYOCD 371024
And the production date is SEPT 1, 2000

Now to the questions you asked:

@CJM: The plastic retainer, holds the bearings in place in the race. That is one piece. Order new bearings and remove the broken one. When they removed the cap (piece I included pictures of) it came out in two pieces(should be one). This piece is metal, appears to be aluminum but not certain.

Your diagram circled part looks VERY simalur. Only my part has a "tag" or "wing" on it, which if I recall correctly is a stop for something else, something rests against that. But yes the part you circled does most likly do the same thing.

Also, yes it's turned sideways, this cap goes over the bearing on the differential side. KHL is correct, it's bored to the case where this part is one piece the bolts down over the bearing and the other half is in the casting as you mentioned.

Have I missed any questions?

Is bearing similar to type shown? You need not get OEM part numbers. Go the shops where they sell bearings and they should be able to get you the correct part.

No, I have the replacement bearings. The cap (pictured) is what I'm trying to find, that has no OEM part number because, so I'm told, it's part of the case, even though its clearly a seperate part. This is my challenge, without a part number, no one seems to know where to look for it. But, I can't imaging there isn't a way to get a replacement piece as I'm sure I'm not the only one that has had this metal piece break.

I'd even be willing to buy a case or used transmission (not rebuild) as long as it has this piece in tact. So I can replace the broken one.

I've checked most of the locat pick-a-part houses and none have a 2001 TIB in their inventory list.

Does that help at all?
