    when the car is cold it is working perfect
    when it gets hot to normal temperature the gears get jumpy
    In low gears sometimes causes the wheels to skid
    please help me to understand what i can do
    gearbox service or complete replace?

    Judging by the symptoms being heat related I'd say it's an issue with the oil so an oil & filter change on the gearbox maybe a good idea. Good luck.

    @aran, I’ve moved your thread to the correct section of the forum.

    I’ve also made the assumption that when you typed “greats”, you meant “gears”.

    Welcome to Audisport.net. :)

    i am still having this problem when cold it's perfect once the car warms up to 90 normal temperature that's when the gears become a bit jumpy jerky if i keep driving then it starts to skid the tyres with a hard jerk when it changes gear

    Let's get this straight mate: Oil and filter are incredibly cheap compared to anything else regarding gearbox.
