    A4 - Multitronic ECU

    Is there anyway to tell if a failure was progressive on an 2004 1.8T A4 Cab?

    The issue is with the gearbox, shudders when gear change 1-2 and vice versa.

    My warranty company are refusing my claim for the ECU based on the failure was prolonged over time before taking out the warranty.
    What proof do they have on this from and how can this be proof obtained?

    Surely if they cannot prove it, they need to either pay out or refund me for the warranty??
    I can always get my garage to vouch for me and say they test drove it in January and hooked up their computer to check for faults, which found none as proof?

    35 days, the claim was made however 2 weeks back which was within the 28days and they took this long just to give me this answer of rejection.
