I have a 2005 2.0tfsi with engine code axx and gearbox code HRW I've been searching for a second hand box for a week now and nothing
Does anyone know if I can use a different gearbox code or which will be compatible? There's a couple on eBay from gtis but all have different codes??
 
Are you looking at direct replacement or changing from a manual?
Whats wrong with your DSG box?
 
Direct replacement my cars at a gearbox specialist now and they nor me can find a Dsg box with HRW code
They've run a diagnostic on it he told me the oil temp sender and a short circuit of some sort
The box knocks and bangs when I try driving it and goes into D and reverse very violently
 
I've tried the second link already they don't do 2.0tfsi I'll try the first and last thanks
And no my display is fine no flashing
 
Yeah, but it shows other boxes might fit; just a case of finding out which ones?
 
Its going to be cheaper to change out the mechatronics unit as the engine wont need dropping. so 3/4 hours work from a decent local mechanic and he will change the oil and filter for you at the same time, I don't think you have a problem with the gearbox as they are bullet proof and 99/9% of the time its the control box that goes as it has a load of valves in the get sticky and worn out that need cleaning or replacement, that's why its important to service and maintain a DSG box regularly every 40k or sooner.
