    DSG 7 speed mechatronic and gear box fault

    My Golf developed a fault overnight last week and I have been told that i need a new mechatronic unit and that the reverse selector sleeve is broken in the gearbox meaning i need my gearbox reconditioned or a brand new one. This is obviously 000's to do and the car is worth 5.4k at best. I am interested to see if anyone else has had this problem? The car is a 2011 Golf 1.6 TDI-CR, 7 speed DSG done 69000 miles. I am shocked to say the least and really just dont know what to do next.

    Yes dry clutch MQ200 series Mechatronic failure is common but we have never needed to replace the box, just the Mechatronic unit which is NOT simple!

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
