Always make sure the Start/Stop System is disabled when
working on the vehicle (turn off ignition, if needed, turn the
ignition back on).

3.1 General Information


Transmission
The flywheel transfers the engine torque to the double clutch.
The flywheel and the dual clutch are connected via splines.
Together they assume the function of the dual-mass flywheel.
The transmission is built like a 6-gear manual transmission.
The alternating hydraulic actuation of the double clutch per
mits operation similar to that of an automatic transmission.
This means the gears are automatically or manually shifted via
the Tiptronic mode. Clutch pedal is not available.
Selector Mechanism
In contrast to the automatic transmission, the selector lever po
sition is no longer transmitted mechanically to the transmission
via the selector lever cable and Multi-Function Transmission
Range (drive position sensor). Selector lever positions and shifts
are transmitted via a separate control module in the selector
mechanism to the transmission control module via the CAN-Bus.
The shift occurs without a cable. The selector lever cable is me
chanically brought into the park brake in the selector lever position
P.
Shift Point Changes on Inclines and Declines

changes for gradients dependent upon accelerator pedal position

Fluid Drain and Check Plug


A plastic overflow tube is located behind this screw -arrow- (with
8 mm hex socket head). Its length determines the oil level in the
transmission.

Electrical Components
Due to an electrostatic charge to the human body, a person can
receive an electrostatic shock when metal objects are touched.
This charge can damage the electrical/electronic components on
the transmission and the selector mechanism.
Touch a grounded object, such as, a water pipe or a vehicle
hoist, before working on electrical/electronic components. Do
not touch connector or open electronic components directly.
