    What year is the car 1st?

    Calibrate with vcds, if still a problem, service the box.

    When was it last serviced?

    It's 2008 and was serviced last at 109,000 now it's 117,000. But someone mentioned it may be the solinoide in gear 1. Sorry what does calibrate the vcds mean.

    I think he means when was the last time the dsg oil in the box was change, ideally it should be done every 40k miles, but more often than not it is not done at all!

    Have a look on VCDS map see if a user local to you can scan your car and recalibrate the box as mentioned above
