    X595 Steering Control Unit Repair

    One of my X595's is leaking oil from the top of the steering control unit. JD wants $550 for a new AM148274. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. They do not have a repair kit like some of the older tractor models. Has anyone had a problem with one of these? Seems like a couple O rings might be all it takes.

    The unit for a 455 has a kit and seals maybe some of these would work. I have a couple control spare units from 4X5 tractors and they look the same. I can guarantee I will be taking it apart to see exactly what the problem is. I did find some on $Bay that I might try a used one.

    X595 Power Steering Lines - ST604066

    On the page that they list the complete valve, scroll down to 3rd from the bottom. They list a seal kit, AM118091 for $61.62. For that price, I'd suspect it's the seal kit you're looking for, but check with your dealer.

    Had one go bad on a X485 at work. All I can say they're a pain to get out and back in. Take pics and label the lines before you start.

    I checked the steering unit for the 4X5 GT's and they showed an exploded view with all of the individual seals. They also listed the AM118091 kit that included all of them. Just for giggles and grins I did a where used search for the AM118091 kit. The list included probably all X400 X500 and X700 garden tractors. I went back to the X595 parts and found the AM118091, but there was no description of what parts were included or the exploded view like the 4X5. I hate the new JD parts system.

    I once changed a steering control for one of my 455's. It was a PITA, but the X595 looks like it is worse. The good news is the Technical Manual has a detailed procedure for removing and repairing the steering unit. The bad news it starts with removing the steering wheel, instrument cluster and shroud. Then you can start on the steering unit.
