Just following on from this, my 2.5 TDI multitronic gearbox I fear is giving me trouble as well, instead of the PRND flashing it lights up a constant red I can't use the manual gear change either. I spoke to Audi stealers and the chap in the service department reckons that the gearbox is damaged possibly due to the oil not being changed every 40k (mines is on 85k) checked with Audi Wearside and they reckon that on the 35k and 57k services there is no record of the gearbox oil being changed. I can't believe that this is the case, potentially this could mean that there is major damage to the box resulting in a replacement at the ridiculous price of £3500, this is not economically viable for me to repair/replace gearbox on a car worth £4000-5500.
Thanks Mark :icon_thumright:
They're a little bit out of my way but worth giving a call all the same.
Had a call from Audi today, they asked if I wanted them to go ahead and replace the gearbox. I said at £5000??? NO THANKS!! I did enquire about the ECU unit and they confirmed it was fine. It's just the gearbox that's faulty which apparently has metal filings inside.
I rang a few gearbox specialists today and received quotes from £1700 - £2500 for repairs or replacement.
Think I'll do a bit more research before making a decision....
