    Hi, just bought my A3 2.0 TDI and wanted to know if it was normal to have this hole open in the transmission? Guy at the garage who was changing my oil said it was normal.

    I dont know if its a gear or the flywheel. Had a feel around the hole and it doesn't have a thread on it so i dont think a bolt was used to close it off.
