    Hi all hope you can help
    i have a 2009 A6 Le Mans 2.0 tdi Multitronic, when I'm almost at a stand with foot on brake but still in gear the feels like a manual would if you didn't dip the clutch, it happens in D and S, and when I pull away without any revs it judders?
    any ides, I know it probably needs to go on vagcom!

    car is dead!
    driving along and lost drive. Engine ticking over normally, just nothing when you put it in gear!
    Green Flag on way to take it home!
    Think I need a diagnostic if any kind person could help me out!😡

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you are "lucky", the box hasn't eaten itself to bits, but either the gearbox controller has packed it in, or the clutch packs are knackered.

    Either way, it is not very cheap to fix, and there is no guarantee that it won't barf up a lung again after being repaired... such is the joy of the multitronic box :/

    I had my previous A4 multi controller replaced for a hair under £1000 by Inde-Tech in Milton Keynes (Multitronic Service). I think I was quoted about £6000 or so for a new box if that didn't fix it! If Milton Keynes is too far from you to be useful, there are likely a few shops which may be closer to you have obviously dealt with this box before - e.g. Gearbox | Automatic Transmission | Transmission | ECU Specialists Birmingham | DSG - Gearbox Specialists Birmingham

    To further **** on your chips, after reading the many horror stories around the 'net (and suffering my own gearbox failure), I came to the conclusion that the multitronic + 2.0TDI combo is quite high-risk in terms of the chances of needing an expensive repair at some point (gearbox is just not very robust, and the oil pump chain/shaft failure scenario on the 2.0 = ouch!). This pair of common issues were actually instrumental factors in me choosing a vehicle with a (traditional auto) tiptronic box and the 3.0 TDI when I traded up to my current car (well, besides being a power glutton, of course :p)

    Hope that was helpful (and doesn't get you down too much!) :)

    EDIT: Oops! Just seen your new post... new 'box required... ouch! I am sorry to hear that :(
