    Hey guys,

    I have a MKV Jetta and recently I've noticed that when somewhat hard turning at low speeds (like turning left out of a junction etc.), there is a groaning noise.
    The noise is essentially identical to the one found in this video: Groaning noise coming from front of car Audi A3 Sportback 2009 2.0 TDI - YouTube(that isn't my video, it's just one I found after a long time of searching.)


    The reason I'm a bit confused with this one is the fact that when the clutch is pushed in, the noise completely disappears.


    The video above was found in a forum wherein the OP said that it was caused by water contamination in the gearbox oil and was rectified by flushing and filling the oil a few times. Could this be the likely culprit? It seems a bit strange that the gearbox would be causing this, given that it only happens when turning hard. I'd be afraid to flush the gearbox oil, however, as I have heard of problems arising when changing it.


    Thanks for any help!

    Which transmission do you have?
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    This is a known fault and the VW notice for it states to change the gearbox oil, the 02M box uses a special oil that is not readily available on the aftermarket, a 70w-75 weight VAG part number G 052 171 A2 for a 1 litre bottle. It only appears to be available from Febi or Meyle from what I can se but Febi list it as a 75W GL4 and Meyle as a 75W-80 Synt so I would use genuine VAG.

    So it's a known fault which is likely to be causing this issue?

    And would springing the extra cash for the genuine VAG bottles (I'd assume I need 3 of them) be worth it?

    Darkside Developments - Genuine Transmission Oil for 6 Speed Manual 02M / 02Q - G 052 171 A2
    febi bilstein 21829 Gear Oil SAE 75W (GL-4), pack of one: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike

    I'd assume the one from DarkSideDevelopments is the correct genuine VAG oil, and the other is the correct one from Febi?

    I'm happy enough springing the extra cash in order to get the genuine VAG oil if it's worth it.

    One thing of note that made me think it wasn't the gearbox oil is that I never have any problems shifting, and the shifts are generally quite smooth. Would this make any difference?

    Thanks very much for the help so far! Hopefully that's one headache sorted.

    Also, this is on a 2.0TDI if that makes any difference in what oil I need.

    Why would you pay 30 from Dark Side when you can buy it for 24.89 retail inc VAT from a VAG dealer high street parts counter? As I said and as a Febi main retailer, I am not sure of their cross reference.

    Got the gearbox oil changed today and lo and behold the noise is gone! I mean, even if it didn't help, I don't think the gearbox oil was changed by the previous owner, so it was dark brown/kind of black and needed changing anyway.

    For anyone experiencing this kind of obscure issue, definitely try changing the gearbox oil.

    Thanks a lot for the help!
