Audi AG has established that Audi vehicles with 7 speed dual clutch gearbox, may over time, not continue to meet required production standards. The recall only effects selected Audi A1 manufactured between 2011 and 2016 and Audi A3 models manufactured between 2008 and 2016.
The mechatronics unit takes electronic signals and converts them into hydraulic power to operate your gearbox. In individual cases, the failure of a component can lead to a pressure loss in the hydraulic part of the gearbox, interrupting the power transmission between engine and gearbox.
It is necessary to undertake an inspection to ascertain whether your mechatronics unit is affected and consequently requires replacement.
