Torque Converters

When it comes to torque converters, our customers do not need to compromise either!

A torque converter of the highest quality improves the switching characteristic of an automatic transmission and dampens noises and vibrations. It is in "continuous use" and must deliver maximum performance at all times.

A converter for automatic transmissions takes the role of the clutch and transmits the driving force of the engine to the transmission.

Its task also is to continuously transmit variable power during the start of the vehicle.

In general, a torque converter operates hydro dynamically. It transmits the driving torque of the motor by the flow forces present in the torque converter oil.

A high quality and proper working transducer contributes much to a dynamic driving experience.

For this reason it must provide consistent quality.


If a transmission is repaired, the torque converter should be replaced and matched to avoid expensive costs.

A faulty torque converter can not be observed from the outside, as the problems are in the interior. Friction linings, needle roller bearings, sealing rings, the freewheel, the torsion and thrust washers can be be worn and / or defective. In addition, debris, burnt clutch linings and metal shavings that are still in the old converter, could get back in the oil circuit of the newly refurbished automatic transmission. Thus, the transmission would again be damaged and it would again cause problems.


Are you looking for high quality and durable torque converters?

 We offer powerful and durable torque converters for almost any vehicle and transmission types. Our converters are the perfect complement to the automatic transmissions we refurbish. Many converters are available for immediate delivery. We use torque converters which are repaired in house. State of the art machinery, trained staff and years of experience in converter repair, guarantee the highest quality! (The only exceptions are ZF - Sachs torque converters, which we obtain directly from the factory.)

We gladly provide additional information about refurbished torque converters and automatic transmissions.

We refurbish torque converters with the greatest care. During the process the converter gets unstitched, conscientiously and carefully cleaned and the inner parts are exchanged. After the torque converter is welded together again, we verify the tightness and size accuracy and balance it. In this way, the high performance and quality standards can be assured and the torque converters are as good as new.

By buying refurbished torque converters from Fahrzeugtechnik Hetzel, up to 50% of the total costs can be saved.

To provide matching converters, we need the following pieces of information:

- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

- "Stücklistennummer"(ZF-Transmissions)

- Year of construction

- Mileage


*Please note that there is a deposit and return system for torque converters.
