B6 Audi 1.8T 140kw Multitronic gearbox issues

Post by Rocca » Mon Oct 16, 2017 7:34 pm

Hi Guys,

My Sister’s Audi is not selecting any gears and so far a gearbox specialist said it could cost her between R25000 and R35000 to sort out. Does this at all seem accurate ? Do you perhaps know if it would be better to buy a reconditioned gearbox or is there a conversion that be done to manual. We essentially looking at the most cost effective way to solve the problem. If you also know of any reliable gearbox specialists that won’t rip her off please feel free to recommend.

Thank you guys in advance.

nah I don't touch multitronic. Have worked on lots of tiptronics but that cvt thing I avoid like the plague.

Do a manual swap, its much cheaper. Yes its more of a mission, but more cost effective and then you don't have the chance of it shittting on you again. I'm on 204k kms with the original CVT box, seems to carry on if you service it enough with the correct parts.

There are coding involved to do the change. So be sure that whomever attempts that understand and has the tools to code the management.
Also be aware that you must complete the coding BEFORE the actual box swop because once there are errors(that you get once the box ain't there anymore) you cannot complete the coding.
But speak to Sarel at 8v performance in benoni. They did one recently.

Thank you Panic will definitely look at going to Sarel. Vagbox would just like to look at the car first.
