    On Wednesday night I was pulling away from traffic lights when I got the error: Gearbox overheating, please adjust driving style. I had only been driving for about 20 minutes and was only in second or third. It wouldn't get out of second gear and wouldn't go above 15-20 mph. I didn't try to force it to change up with the paddles and I quickly parked up.

    I came back to it in the morning and drove perfectly happily to the nearest dealer. This morning they called me to say they can't see the fault and recommended a gearbox oil change. I can see that the gearbox oil was done at 44k and it's now at 67k. Should I be doing it again? They want 250 which sounds steep.

    Advice appreciated! Many thanks

    I would get your oil changed, its the first step and 250 sounds about right.

    I'm sure on the Audi website it's a fixed price at 225......

    Thank you for the replies.

    I have just had the following message from Audi via their online system:

    looked a bit further into this and there is a TPI (2022497/20) for this fault which states requires a new printed circuit for the mechatronics!!! there are other TPI's for faults including a SW update so advise new printed circuit and SW update then re-check


    They want 1,020 for the PCB... is this a common problem?

    The gearbox has a fluid cooler which is linked to the coolant system. Mine malfunctioned, and was replaced, could be that, a scan would show it up. They should fail open, so always cooled.
