Audi Rough Gear Change
This bulletin applies to 2004-2014 Audi A3/TT, 2007-2014 Q7, 2006-2014 A4, A5, A6, A7, A8 and Q5, and 2010-2014 S4, S5, S6, S7 and RS5 vehicles.
After a mechatronics, torque converter or complete gearbox replacement, the clutches must be adapted to the new component. This requires a gradual move of the clutch linings toward the optimal operating points in the most diverse load conditions. As a result, sporadic driving power disruptions lasting for less than one second or reduced shift comfort are possibly more than the first 500 miles. This is normal and these issues will decrease over time. The issues can also occur if the adaptation values of the gearbox were deleted. Follow the procedure in Elsa to start the clutch adaptations toward full adaptation.
