I recently lost all drive in my Audi A6 Avant 2.5TDI Quattro (AKE Engine Code). Simptoms include total loss of forward and reverse drive, no strange or loud noises. After dropping the transmission oil, numerous aluminium chuncks of metal came out too. (BAD Day)
So I either recon the box at a price of about £2000 or find a second hand box.
Q1. Gearbox codes: Am I right in thinking that a different gearbox code will have a different gear ratio inside...For instance a 2.7T engine will have a totally different gearbox?
Before I commit to getting it reconditioned is there anything I should be checking or asking the garage before I drop it off?
