DSG issues
« on: September 18, 2018, 05:24:07 pm »
I am having some major issues with my B8 A4 Quattro DSG....it all started with an inability to reverse on some occasions, then I started getting a warning on my dash stating "transmission malfunction, able to drive with limited function"...not a good sign. I have it booked in with my mechanic on Monday but have to get back from Nelson to Christchurch beforehand. It is driving OK on the open road so long as I don't floor it too hard. Most of the warnings have come on at low speed in low gears. I have mechanical insurance, and they have been alerted to the fact...so hopefully all should be fixed. Anyone else had similar issues?

sounds like clutch packs. But the longer it's left, the higher the probability the mechatronic unit may fail also.

Thanks GLIDN....the car has now had a full mechatronic rebuild after 2 weeks with mechanic. Clutch plates were burn't out and oil was black as tar. Covered under Autosure warranty. Any reason a wheel alignment is part of the procedure? Seems odd.

if the gearbox came out the would have possibly touched the subframe etc which would ruin the alignment....
