Hi, I was driving on Saturday when my 2004 A6 Avant 1.8T died on me. Basically I pulled up to a junction but when I attempted to pull away the car just revved and wouldn't move. I could move the gear level through the gears no problem but couldn't push it when it was in neutral indicating that it was stuck in gear. I have had no prior warning of this with none of the juddering that others have mentioned so it has come as a major shock to say the least. The RAC managed to transport the car to a local garage who inspected it yesterday and have informed me that the gearbox needs replacing. They have contacted Audi who have quoted £3900 for a new gearbox so with labour on top it is going to cost me £4500 to repair!! Does anyone know if it is posssible to source a reconditioned multitronic gearbox as I need to get it repaired but £4500 is very steep for a 6 year old car? I will also require it being sent to the Channel Islands. I also noticed a lot of posts regarding goodwill gestures from Audi, I realise the car is well out of warranty but it does have a full Audi service history so that might help(it has 120,000 miles on it). Any advice on how I would proceed with this i.e. do I just email them via the customer service link on their website? Thanks in advance for all replies. Steve.
