    Hard shift when car warms up

    Hello everyone

    I have a problem with my 2010 Passat 2.0 TDI DSG.

    After driving the car for 5 minutes the transmission warm up and car will start shiftting hard.

    I checked for error codes and I got P1741- clutch pressure adaptation at limit. I tried to change the transmission oil, the oil that came out was black, I bought this car recently so I dont know when was the last time oil was replaced.

    Any suggestion?
    Thanks

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this post.

    Is that a 6 speed or 7 speed DSG?

    VAG Error Code: 18149/005953
    EOBD II Error Code: P1741

    Fault Location:
    Clutch Pressure Adaptation: Limit Reached - Lower Limit Exceeded/Upper Limit Exceeded

    Possible Cause:
    -

    Possible Solutions:
    Check gearbox settings, Reset Values. 6-Speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG/02E)

    2010 Golf GTD (170) CBBB, 5 Door, Shadow Blue (P6/D5Q), Transmission Code: KXZ, Flat Tyre Indicator, Basic Protection Pack + VCDS.

    That is a burnt out clutch pack, the reason it was sold...

    I will try first to run the basic setting for the gearbox, I am just hoping it's not the clutch pack.
    I'll update you after it's done.

    Black fluid is not a bad set up, it is burnt friction linings.

    Update:
    I replaced transmission oil again (different manufacturer) and it solved the problem.

    Very few companies make DSG fluid, what did you use, Febi or Meyle?
