Toyota (MMT) Clutch Actuator + Gear Actuator Repairs

Toyota 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.

  • Toyota Yaris T-Spirit 2003 Automatic
    Car has done 30K only. Worked fine until, slowing down, the clutch did not engage. When left at a standstill for a while eg 30 mins, the car would drive well. Then it would happen again. The local independent sent the clutch actuator away to a firm (like yours?) and for a while, it was fine. But recently it is happening again and my wife now can’t trust her lovely car. The actuator has been sent back to the firm and they have tested it and say it’s fine. Local garage says they have to see and do computer diagnostic whilst it has broken down, but that circumstance has not happened, as the car will work again after a short time. They borrowed it for a weekend and it behaved faultlessly. My friend said it could be electrics. Any ideas, please?

    • Hi Stephen

      Thanks for the enquiry,

      We find that when one actuator fails, the other can fail shortly after. I would recommend sending us both actuators so that we can test them and if there is a fault, we will find it. I have sent you an email with full information and pricing.
