Toyota (MMT) Clutch Actuator + Gear Actuator Repairs

Toyota Clutch Actuator ProblemsToyota Multi-Mode Transmission (MMT) Clutch Actuator + Gear Actuator
Multi-Mode Transmission, or MMT for short, is a type of sequential manual gearbox offered by Toyota and is commonly known to be fitted to the Aygo, Auris, Yaris and Corolla Verso models. The MMT comes with a conventional friction clutch and a mechanical gear selector mechanism which is controlled electronically, instead of the conventional automatic transmission which uses hydraulics and a torque converter. As many Toyota owners will be aware, this particular design has had many many complaints and common failures with the clutch and gear actuator units.

Common MMT Clutch Actuator + Gear Actuator Problems
Some of the most common problems associated with the MMT Gearbox Clutch + Gear Actuators are:

  • Slipping out of gears
  • Getting Stuck in Neutral
  • Gearbox Light On Dash
  • Complete Failure

If you find that the clutch or gearbox actuator has failed, many customers who have asked around regarding this issue will know that going to the main dealer will cost in excess of £700 + VAT, Labour and Programming and the new replacement will only come with the standard 12 month warranty. If you opt for a second hand part, it may work out slightly cheaper but then it will also require coding / programming which requires dealer level equipment and this will come at an additional cost with a limited 30 -90 day warranty. Keeping in mind the current issues that occur with these actuators, this could also work out to be more expensive due to risk of it failing again.

  • Yaris 2003 MMT: Semi-Automatic Transmission
    I have an intermittent problem with the MMT. It slips out of gear into Neutral, mostly when decellerating under engine braking, eg coasting up to a roundabout. It can be at any speed. It started on a very occasional basis but it is now happening every journey. The transmission warning light also comes on at this time.
    I have tried to show the problem to technicians and been told there is nothing they can do, apart from exchanging parts. In case these descriptions of the problem are helping you, can you exactly know the part’s type? How much is the price? I will be grateful for any assistance and am looking forward to hearing your response. BRds. Henok

    Re: 2007 Yaris 1.3 MMT

    im about to drop the gearbox to replace the clutch/bearing in a hope that this is all required. The plan was to scrap it if not, But now you have me intrigued. Could you kindly send info regarding actuator repair?

    Kind regards

  • Hi,
    My 2010 yaris MMT 28k Miles has started to slip out of gear ocassionally when driving at higher speeds 50/60mph. is this likely to be the actuator fault? Thanks you

    • Hi Lee

      Thanks for the enquiry,

      The clutch + gear actuators along with the transmission ECU are very common failing parts, you would need to get the fault diagnosed to confirm which part is faulty. We offer testing and repairs for all three of the mentioned components and I have sent you an email just now with full pricing and information.

  • I’ve got a intermittent transmission issue with my Toyota Yaris 1.33 VVT-i MMT semi-auto 59reg.

    The transmission warning light have been showing up from cold start in recent months. When it lights up it won’t engage gears. Wait for a minute. Stop and restart it will work fine again. It some what tend to happen on a warm high humidity day or just warmer days. Last week was cold & raining and it worked fine with no issues. Today warm humidity again & it happened again.

    it slipped out of gear during middle of drive several weeks ago. Turned off engine, wait a bit and try start again several time. It started work again in about 10 to 15 minutes of trying and manage to get home.

    I went to have it diagnosed. Seems the bill could spiral and there’s no guarantee the problem will go away. It’s low mileage below 29000 miles.

    Can you fix it and how much? What guarantee & warranty you offer?
    THanks.
