Quote from: breakfastdude on April 24, 2021, 11:14:34 AMFrom 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.
Quote from: nikhilg12 on April 24, 2021, 08:15:21 PMYeah, I figured that the gearbox would still require some sort of maintenance even though it's 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. I'm just not very satisfied with the way this car jerks when accelerating from a stop especially on an incline
Quote from: GLIDN on April 27, 2021, 10:24:50 AMIf 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.

Quote from: jj44 on August 26, 2021, 10:55:55 PMOFFTOPIC but i gt to ask:1. Whats the best MBI in Auckland? Im currently with Autolife and they are terrible to deal with. Thankfully never had to make a claim and the end of 3 years is coming up so will be shopping around.2. So if i'm to understand this correctly, will MBI companies not cover DSG failures even when you are following Manufacturer's schedule? even when the dealer has advised to service at 160km?if so, once lockdown is over, i'll be headed down to VW and getting a written copy of that statement for if/when the need arises to battle it out with MBI.
