Need to get it scanned for codes.....sounds like some mechanical failure of the box though, which as you guess does not bode well.

Could be failure of the internal oil pump, which would result in no hydraulic pressure and overheating, but could be anything - a scan will hopefully reveal some more information.

 

I'm guessing the car is out of warranty?

Hi thanks for the message yes it’s out of warranty and it’s just covered 38k so got to get the scam done and see not looking forward to it as it’s bound to be expensive

DSG oil not Haldex. I’ve also heard of mechatronic boxes failing on DSG cars. Hope you get it sorted!

You are due a dsg service - probably worth doing this and resetting the gearbox before you pull it.

Hi there no it didn’t help it and I’ve just brought another box and it’s being fitted today, as it was the shaft that connects to the clutch had completely snapped,due to either bad mapping of the box and too many launches!! So sourced another box complete with transfer box and dual mass that had only covered 20k, all fitted in today and awaiting results from testing and software removal of crap SA tuning software and putting back to stock for now. Any ideas on how much I could sell the box for and also the transfer box??
