    I found bearings for a Sambar.......... does anyone know if the bearings are all pretty generic? Would Sambar bearings work on the Domingo?
    :(

    Hey looking for any info on north american sources or part numbers for for a clutch and throw out bearing on a 93 domingo. Also break part numbers. Id much rather not order them from Japan if possible. Any help would be great thanks.

    As far as I know you're going to have to buy from a parts importer. There are a few in Vancouver, Canada, but since they're not forum sponsors I can't mention them.

    If you want a set of front brake pads or rear shocks for a KJ8 -style (boxy) Domingo, I have those for free + shipping, though...

    Hello.... I was wondering if anyone has had heard of any bearing failures in transmission or transfer case or chain drive system in their domingo?
    Mine is making this noise which is constant, until my wheels stop turning.......... it seems to be coming from the middle underneath .......... near transmission case...... One fellow said it sounds like a bad bearing but he wasn't too familiar with the domingo transmission set up........... he wanted to know if there are any schematics of what an automatic transmission lay out was like, so he can kind of pin point what the problem could be?
    Anybody? Help? Please?

    Hi piglet - have PMed you with manuals. I haven't had any problems like that with my Domingo (or any problems to speak of). Hope your gearbox oil isn't low!

    Any mechanic-y friend should be able to help. There are two big hex-socket plugs on the transmission (next to the engine). The upper one is the fill plug, the lower one the drain plug. When cold and parked on a level surface, the transmission oil should be filled to just barely dripping out the top filler plug.

    To change the gearbox oil you can pull the bottom drain plug. Refill with 75W-80 GL-4 fluid only! You can also check for metal shavings on the plug (which is a BAD SIGN).

    Is there a dipstick to check the level of gearbox fluid? My dad was wondering............ he said that he saw a dipstick and was wondering if that was for the transmission fluid..........and if there was one for the gearbox? Sorry for bugging you about this :\

    Well........ thanks anyways.......
    Also, I am sorry if some of my questions seem a little "simple" by a mechanics standard..... it's probably because I'm not a dude :)
    And you are right.... "Them automatics" :frustration:

    Which part number, Matt? Number 9? No idea... How did it get worn out in the first place?

    I have a Domingo 1200cc auto-transmission 4WD air-con. I have a German manual but don't speak a word of German. I'd LOVE a French version as I speak some French and my brother is bi-lingual. I'm particularly interested in pages relating to the auto transmission as mine has just packed up and my mechanic isn't sure where to start to identify/fix the problem.

    Did you manage to fix your gearbox problem? Reason I ask is it looks like mine has packed up & I need help. Can you put me in contact with whoever fixed your van?

    Did you manage to get to the bottom of this problem because I believe my beloved van has the same issue? Any tips or details of who fixed your van greatly appreciated.

    Does anyone know if the auto gearbox from a Subaru Justy will fit a Subaru Domingo? Trying to keep my options open as have seen an automatic Justy on ebay being sold for spares.

    Got this fixed by Japanoid as I didn't have the right tools to push the bushing on.

    I'm in another pickle right now - clutch has died on my 5spd. I believe the parts swap requires a full engine removal, but does anyone know if you can do that AND still roll the car? The kind folks at the service center near the breakdown said they'd be willing to look at it, but not if it has to sit on the lift for a week while the parts come in!

    I've been told that most Justy parts are simply not compatible - might be worth a call to Japanoid in BC or CVI just to ask - they seem to be pretty good at answering these questions!
