    Thats bad news , whatever you do dont get an RX8 ,even more of a money pit!
    Can the box be rebuilt? You can buy all the parts even if Main dealer says you cannot.

    I want something fast and reasonably cheap. I can rebuild it although I don't know if it will be worth the effort and the money if probably will only last another 10k miles before something else goes. I pulled the codes of the gearbox then erase them after to take it out of the emergency mode to see what it does and the whole car is shaking and revs are all over the place. I bet everything is badly shredded in there. First I would have to take it out which means I need space for that and doing it on my drive is just ridiculous as I need the car in the air to take the exhausts out first then take the gearbox out then crack it open, assess it then pull the parts of ElsaWIN to get from Audi then this does not guarantee that this will work once I put it back. Time is money too I need to drive to university and work can't have a car that takes a lot of dough every month that is stationary. Here are the codes:

    Don't know what I will do yet but once I calm down and stopped being pissed off about the weather being great today and my detailed convertible is sitting on the drive where everyone else is riding top down. Story of my life. ;-)

    Finally coming to my senses and trusting someone with my car it was taken to the garage for a complete gearbox rebuilt. I will have it back tomorrow evening! Hard to believe it but yes. I actually could drive away after 2 hours to fix the main fault but after doing 92k miles on one oil she deserves the full on treatment.

    Car is detailed and all good. One thing is the RNS-D is locked because of battery being disconnected and I haven't got the code! Lost it somewhere. Audi now has to book the car in for an hour and £10 and I can get it - next Wednesday :|

    Full service history doesn't quite cut it when it comes to the amount of paper work my car comes with so I bought this! Almost £9000 in just bills and not all of them are here! :-O

    Who did you use? was it the ebay seller you linked to on page 1? ( tadeusz1978 )

    Asking because i'm about to book my 02 A6 2.5TDI CVT in with them and would like some feedback on them.

    Thanks,
    Dan.

    Oil pump was the key element to fail. The filters in the oil pump pressure block were completely clogged the oil flow stopped causing the pump to seize and as this is a CVT it just turned it over dry destroying the sprocket in the pump. As an of implications the main pulley got scratched and grooved and the chain had to be reconditioned. So yeah that about covers it. After the work the gearbox is better than new. Doesn't hesitate between gears and all the automatic problems/myths are gone.

    It was changed at 30k and for next 60k it wasn't changed. I hope your gbox will be fine for long time although it always comes times for the CVT so one day.

    Autoglym works superb. Roof doesn't absorb any water.

    Multitronic is fine. I still have warranty on it. I am going back though for clutch programming as it drops to neutral to quick and maybe another oil change. :) Lovely as usual though.
