Toyota MMT (Multimode) Clutch Actuator / Gearbox Malfunction

Toyota MMT (Multimode) Clutch Actuator / Gearbox Malfunction

The Toyota MMT clutch actuator, which is fitted to gearboxes on the Toyota Auris, Corolla Verso, and Yaris, will often fail preventing gear selection, which will leave the vehicle undriveable. This loss of drive will regularly cause the N symbol to flash on the gear selection screen, indicating that the clutch actuator is faulty.

Although the majority of these faults happen when the vehicle is stationary, immediately after the ignition was turned on, these issues can also happen whilst driving, which will cause the gearbox to drop out of the current gear, and back into neutral.

With the Yaris, Aygo, Corolla Verso, and Auris, all being affected by the troublesome Toyota MMT clutch actuator and gear selector, these vehicles will commonly store the fault codes including P0810 – clutch position control error and P0900 – clutch actuator circuit, which are a clear indication that one, or even both, of these actuators has failed.

Replacing both the clutch actuator, gear selector, and the clutch itself, results in an expensive and lengthy clutch re-learn procedure. This severely increases the time, labour, and expense needed, which is usually not necessary.

Our solution to the Toyota MMT clutch actuator and gear selector problem is a full rebuild of these actuator, for a fraction of the cost of new replacements. Unlike the limited one-year warranty provided by the manufacturer, we provide an unlimited mile lifetime warranty*. So, you are really getting the best of both – a cheaper alternative to a new set of actuators, and a much better warranty to boot.

  • No gear selection
  • No drive

  • 89457-52010
  • 19230-02000


Test and rebuild:

Our custom-made and state of the art HIL (Hardware In-the-Loop) testing rigs allows us to test these actuators under real-world loads and driving conditions. Once all the internal faults have been identified, our technicians will rebuild the actuator, replacing all commonly failing parts with components that are higher quality than standard. The unit is then extensively re-tested to ensure that no further faults remain, this means that your rebuilt actuator will perform as good as, and if not better than a brand new replacement unit.



No coding is required for these actuators, so once you receive the unit back just simply plug and play.



Our strict quality assurance process allows us to attain a defect rate no higher than 0.49%, ensuring that all rebuilds adhere to our high quality, and lifetime warranty standards. Because of this, we are trusted by many major dealerships and specialists throughout the world.
