    My 2013 Golf GT 1.4 DSG has been perfect. Its only done 54,000 miles and is immaculate both cosmetically and mechanically. However, yesterday I noticed a slight clunky change when pulling away in drive. Difficult to describe but on checking by stopping and pulling away on a clear road I noticed that the gear change from 1st to 2nd happens almost instantly and there is a slight "clunk", very slight. The car picks up OK after that and the rest of the gear changes are smooth. Never noticed it before and having driven the car for 8 years I assume this is new as I would have noticed it before. Does the same in sport mode as well.

    I haven't tried manual as by definition it wont be a problem. I have a Carly OBD scanner and its doesn't pick up any codes in the transmission section. Anyone any ideas ?

    I live near Basingstoke and have never used a DSG specialist before so if anyone knows one that would be great. I dont trust my local dealer and not sure of normally excellent independents ability with DSG although they did do a gearbox service, oil, 3 months OK. But thats not difficult of course

    This is an early indicator of pressure accumulator mounting failure, we fit a LOT of new Mechatronics and when we get customers reporting this we try and get them to think in advance and get the new unit on its way from Germany as this takes weeks or even months. New genuine Mechs are a Vehicle Intelligent Part and have to be paid for before ordering. The order cannot be cancel or the unit returned to a TPS even if it is faulty on installation. If this happens, the vehicle then has to be recovered to the make appropriate dealer (VW in this case) and you are then at the tender mercies of the TPS warranty system which is useless.

    Thanks for the reply

    Sounds like a nightmare but I am one for being proactive. Especially as the car is immaculate.
    Any indication as to timescale and cost ?

    Time for delivery has been from next day to so many months the customer passed away… A new genuine Mechatronic is circa £2050 and about 3 hours labour, gearbox oil (the Mech is pre-filled) and then setup up preferably using ODIS so approx £2500.
