Disadvantages of the Audi DL382 gearbox

  • The main problem with such gearboxes is the rapid wear of the clutch kit.
  • The mechatronics solenoids become clogged with wear products and the manual transmission begins to push.
  • The service life of an electric pump in mechatronics rarely exceeds 150,000 km.
  • Another weak point is the clutch and differential drum bearings.
  • Also, the electronic control board and sensor module often fail.
