What did he say about servicing a 2016 manual transmission from VW?

What do you even mean by "servicing" anyway? You don't seem to be aware of what can or can't go wrong with a DSG's internals (or a current year manual transmission, frankly) and so the questions you ask someone about repairing either aren't likely to be accurate.

Here's what happened: you got a flat tire. I came over and said, oh that's no big deal, just call any ole tire place and get a new one put on. You then called the most expensive tire shop in town because you think their opinion would surely be expert level but you told them, "I've got a busted wheel, do you service wheels?" and they predictably told you, no, we don't work on wheels and in fact you probably are going to just have to replace it. Then you came back to me and said, whoa man this seems like a really complicated repair after all, the best shop in town doesn't even work on wheels!"

If you want an automatic that performs like a manual(better in some ways), the dsg is about as good as it gets. In stock configuration they can hold more torque than the OE mt clutch. They are more versatile in a day and age when most Americans don't even know how to drive a stick. But they are more complex than the purely mechanical manual trans. Bottom line is the dsg should be pretty reliable with a stage 2 tune, but you'll probably be spending an extra ~$400 for a dsg tune.

About $1500-2000 for the 02q. Expensive but mostly for the labor to remove trans.

Service as in repair synchro etc, not maintenance items like clutch/flywheel. But in this case I asked simply about replacing a clutch. Sorry you donít like facts but they are what they are.

If you can work on them yourself Iím sure theyíre fine but for the rest of us....

Mods, please lock and trash this thread, it's been a long time since I've seen this level of derp and misinformation in a thread. We don't need more people with no mechanical knowledge getting even more confused and spreading more fake news.

Bizzle, I like your analogy.

W t f is going on here?!? If you don’t have mechanical knowledge or ability please tell me how you can weigh in on this. Kevinski4 is right. Dump this thread. It’s getting really annoying seeing what mind numbing opinions are being wrote here. Maybe I’m just insane.

That's insane. I wonder how much the wheelie bars really help in a fwd drag car. I've noticed that most of the sub 10s fwd diesel drag cars don't run them. Maybe it's more about stability in a short wheelbase car.

Welp that’s enough for me...DSG that runs an 8.4 must be junk and unserviceable.

Well if I were you I would find another shop that has knowledgeable competent mechanics. If you use them for your general work I would also seek another shop as they don't know very much or have any great mechanical skills.

Cool. Then why doesnít everyone here with extensive knowledge throw some real world numbers from transmission shops that will do basic work on dsg trans. Give data not opinions... this is supposed to be a helpful/informative thread.

What do you consider basic work? Change the fluid? What kind of data do you want?

DSG service will need the use of vcds or something comparable to read the trans temp when changing the fluid to make sure the correct amount is added. As for changing a whole unit they are 90% the same as a standard shift so labor rates will differ from shop to shop ontop of what a used unit cost if going that route. As for tearing into one and fixing it is going to be a pretty penny be it the mechtrinic unit on the side of the trans. Or go even deeper inside to shafts gears synchros bearings shift forks and so on. Does that shed any light?

1. Drain fluid
2. Replace drain plugs
3. Remove Battery
4. Remove filter housing
5. Remove Filter
6. Add 4.5 liters of DSG fluid through filter hole(a funnel helps a lot)
7. Replace filter
8. Replace filter housing
9. Replace battery
10. Drive on
Forget about the VCDS BS
If your mechanic/technician can change your oil they can change the DSG fluid if not well as I eluded to before......find a different shop!



How many DSG Transmissions with catastrophic repairs have been reported on this forum?

Does that shed any light?

Move on
