I believe the technician plans to replace the brake rotor and lining (1032674) to quiet a slight squeal we hear when the spinning stops. It wasn't anything I would have considered a problem, but my MO on car work is if you're already in there and it's cheap enough, replace it.

Parts other than the transmission (warranted) look like less than $30 or 40, so I assume I'm otherwise paying for a service call (maybe two) and 2 or 3 hours of labor.

What else he plans to replace I am not sure, but I will make certain he replaces the snubber ring. I always ask to see old parts, too, so I can figure what might have caused an issue (and change my habits accordingly).

Which is why I'm curious about what causes the transmission to bust up inside. Any thoughts on how to nurse along the new one to stretch out it's life?

Until we can get a front loader, that is...
