RS4 B8 gearbox

Hi All

I have a 2014 RS4 B8 and was on a ‘spirited’ drive at the highlands and experienced an incident where the gearbox was hesitant to change gear between 2nd and 3rd. It could be nothing as it was a steep hill and may have just been working out the right gear. I’ve also noticed the odd hard shove in to gear when moving off from a standstill so have tried to be a bit gentler on accelerator which helps. Again, could just be a characteristic of the gearbox. 
 

Any thoughts welcome!

Thanks

Matt

The two things I'd be considering is a diagnostic check to see if any fault codes flag up. 

I'd also be looking to see when the gearbox oil was last changed as degrading oil can affect gear changes on the dsg/s-tronic gearbox.

Thanks Steve, a recent health didn’t throw up anything (assuming they did a diagnostic check).

It’s in for an oil service in August so will get them to check then and also see about a gearbox oil change too. I’ve heard horror stories (hopefully just blown out of proportion) so keen to do any preventative work if possible!

A health check won't include a diagnostic check. 

If you're experiencing the issues now I'd get it in asap if it was mine. But I do going ott with servicing.

It was done at 39k in 2020 by an Audi dealer. Now done 46k, so may be a bit premature to do it again.

Hello Matt,

What was done at 39k in 2020?
Kind regards,

Gareth. 

Hi Gareth

Sorry being a bit absent minded there! The gearbox oil and filter along with front and rear final drive was changed.

I understood it was mileage based (every 20k) rather time based servicing item.

Thanks

I agree, won't need doing again. That quickly then.
