Hi Mishar, I forgot to mention that zf have put the fear of god into me saying that basically the transmission will destroy itself without the updated software and that I shouldn't drive the car at all.
I have a 06 A8 3.0TDI Quattro and experienced noticeable gearshift 4th into 3rd on downshift intermittently. As there is 83,000 miles on it my local Audi specialists suggested changing the transmission oil.
Oil from Audi (part no G060162A2)on epc as the superceeded part no. After they changed the oil today & carried out the adaption process through the online Audi diagnostics (same as Main Dealer) but could not find any TSI's for gearbox programming.
Vehicle came with lifeguard 6 (no longer available from Audi) and this has been supeceeded to G06016A2 fluid.
On speaking to zf today, tech said there was a 'special procedure' for replacing oil & TCM module software update to use this oil. I asked him to provide information on the software update but refused to give the information.
Does anyone knows the gearbox software update code or the TSI bulletin number from Audi?.
Hope you can help
Thank you for your valuable input on this forum. I do have an issue with my 2008 A8 W12 and was hoping for an advice. With the same temperature settings, different temperature air comes from the outlet vent on the driver side and passenger side. Driver side air vent is blowing very hot air all the time. Would you point me in the right direction to get this fixed, please?
I am new to the forums and a new owner to a 2006 audi a8. I have been reading thru the forums and you seem to have great solutions to other users problems. So, I am hoping you can help.
Here is the problem: Air suspension...
No leaks and car hold height all the time. all of the lift functions work and no warning lights on the dash. For some reason, the air compressor seems to turn on every time the car reaches a speed of 22-25mph and cuts off when I come to a full stop. This is very annoying because on cold starts I can really feel the vibration on my steering wheel (sound coming from front left driver side wheel).. Any advise on this matter would be greatly appreciated.. This is normal? if not what do you think is the issue?? Thanks for the time..
Looking for a set of MMI gears. Would you happen to have a set or know where they can be found? Dealer wants to sell me the whole unit but gears are all I need.
Thanks for the great repair instructions.
Hi Misha it's Mark. Do you have any insight into replacing the plastic strip that separates the shift cover from the electronics? Mine broke and I ordered the part but not sure it if it a hard job or something relatively easy. Thanks in advance!
