Hello, thanks for reading this Post.

I have 06 VW Golf TDI 1.9L

My trans shifts hard when cold 1-2 and 2-3rd gear, other gears shifts very smooth even when extremely cold . I bumped into this article . Does anyone know how much it cost ? Only dealer can do it ?





The Volkswagen transmission has been documented by consumers to have a few issues that prevent the car from being a joy to ride. The Volkswagen models that have been affected by these transmission problems and have been recalled by the manufacturer are the Jetta, Jetta Sportswagen, GTI and Eos. The problems are mainly due to a fault in the Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) system. Volkswagen has also had problems with its high-end paddle gearbox, the Tiptronic Transmission System .

1. The Tiptronic Transmission
The Volkswagen's Tiptronic transmission is very modern and uses cutting edge technology. However, it has a few inherent weak points. These have been identified by the manufacturer and steps have been taken to resolve them. The problems with this transmission are hard shifts from gear 1 to 2, erratic shifting from gear 3 to gear 4 and a shudder in the torque converter. These can be rectified by following the Volkswagen service bulletin and downloading the latest software.

09A isn't a transmission/gear box code it isn't a transmission type. I've posted the codes you said.
