Dry Clutch DSG Service??

(1/2) > >>

Hi Team!

So I recently found out that my mk7 Golf TSI has a dry clutch not a wet clutch, and VW Tristram in West Auckland suggested that it doesnt need a DSG Service? Is this true?

Also they confirmed my car had a mechatronics recall done last year so that part is replaced, although it does jerk a bit when moving in 1st gear to 2nd and SO MUCH MORE in bumper to bumper traffic.

I called Gearbox factory in west auckland and had a DSG Service booked in, they didnt even ask me whether it was dry or wet clutch DSG, guy didnt seem to know much? What would be have serviced and charged me  :o :o

Does this particular clutch need any other service? Basic transmission fluid changing?

From what I understand it will involve a basic fluid change indeed, along with filter change. While the clutches aren't bathed in fluid, fluids still exist within the valve body/mechatronics.

You might want to have your transmission checked by someone who knows these. Try JC Automatic in Henderson, as from what I know they regularly service/fix both dq200 (dry clutch dsg) and dq250 (wet clutch) trannies. Yours might just need an adaptation done.

Yeah i figured that the gearbox would still require some sort of maintenance even though its a dry clutch. I have called Tristram and Giltrap and they both confirmed that my car has had a mechatronics recall last year with the part swapped and fixed. Im just not very satisfied with the way this car jerks when accelarating from stop especially on an incline

If your mech unit was replaced last year? They would have had to replace the fluid as well.

1. would be to perform a DSG adaption on your vehicle and see if that improves your driving experience at all.
2. Would be looking at getting a DQ200 tune from TVS Engineering, which should resolve your experience. Shoot me a PM if you would like some more information about TVS engineering.

I have PM'd you mate. Would be keen to know more about the DQ200 tune. I have done a DSG reset on my car and have noticed some difference in the jerkiness, but it seems I have to accelerate a bit more compared to before to get good speed.  :'(
