Audi A4: Mechatronic, Removing and Installing

Special tools and workshop equipment required

  • Used Oil Collection and Extraction Unit -SMN372500-
  • Assembly Tool -T40305-
  • Oil Sump Assembly Pin -T40199-
  • Electronic Torque Wrench 3-60Nm -VAS6583-
  • Cover -T40322-
  • Support -T40321-

Removing

  Note

  • General repair instructions. Refer to → Chapter "Repair Information".
  • Guidelines for clean working conditions when working on the dual-clutch transmission. Refer to → Chapter "Rules for Cleanliness When Working on DSG Transmission".

  WARNING

The system is under pressure.

  • Deactivate the ATF pump and drain the hydraulic pressure reservoir before removing the Mechatronic!
  • Refer to → Chapter "ATF Pump, Deactivating and Draining the Hydraulic Pump Reservoir".

  Caution

There is a risk of destroying the transmission control module (Mechatronic) with static discharge.

  • Always "discharge" the static electricity before working with connectors. Do this by touching a grounded object, for example vehicle ground, the heater or the hoist.
  • Do not touch connector terminals in the transmission connector with hands.

The Transmission is Installed.

- Remove the noise insulations -1 and 2-. Refer to → Body Exterior; Rep. Gr.66; Noise Insulation.

- Drain the ATF. Refer to → 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission 0CK; Rep. Gr.34; ATF; ATF, Draining and Filling.

- Turn off the ignition and remove the key.

A10-11071

- Disconnect the connector -1- by pressing the locking mechanism -B arrow- and pull the locking bracket -2- in the direction of -arrow A-.

A34-11231

- Remove the protective cap -arrow-.

- Remove the transmission fluid pan. Refer to → Chapter "Transmission Fluid Pan, Removing and Installing".

A34-11335

- Disconnect the connector -arrow- using the Assembly Tool -T40305-.

A35-10539

  WARNING

The system may be under pressure.

  • Make sure that the ATF pressure reservoir is discharged. Refer to → Chapter "ATF Pump, Deactivating and Draining the Hydraulic Pump Reservoir".
  • When the system status is not clear, for example the cause of a faulty transmission control module, only loosen the mechatronic bolts to a minimal degree, so that the oil pressure in the hydraulic pressure reservoir can decrease slowly.
  • Wear protective eyewear.

- Loosen the bolt in the sequence -1 to 7- a 1/2 turn.

- Remove the bolts -2 and 5- and install the two Oil Sump Assembly Pin -T40199- in their place.

- Remove the remaining bolts -1, 3, 4, 6 and 7-.

A35-10542

  Caution

Risk of causing damage to the Mechatronic.

  • Only bolts -1 through 7- may be loosened.
  • If other bolts are loosened, this may impair the function of the Mechatronic unit or it may come apart.

  Note

  • The Mechatronic fits partially inside the transmission.
  • If the Mechatronic must be removed, then a second technician will be needed to keep it from falling. Another alternative, the bolts -1 and 2- can be installed slightly to hold the Mechatronic in place while it is being removed.

  Caution

Risk of causing damage to the Mechatronic.

Lay the Mechatronic with the bolt head side facing down only.

- Remove the Mechatronic.

  Caution

Contamination damages the Mechatronic.

A clean work environment is required for working on the Mechatronic.

  • Place the removed Mechatronic on a clean surface and cover it. Use foil or lint-free cloths.

- Seal the ATF channel with the Cover -T40322-.

A34-11504

Installing

Install in the reverse order of removal while noting the following:

  Caution

  • The pump for the Transmission Fluid Auxiliary Hydraulic Pump -V552- can start up on a non-deactivated control module immediately after installing the connector. Refer to → Chapter "ATF Pump, Deactivating and Draining the Hydraulic Pump Reservoir".
  • From this the pump can be damaged, or the residual oil can flow out under high pressure.
  • To prevent this install the transmission control module connector after installing the oil pan and the transmission filled with ATF.
  • Only install clean parts: remove the new mechatronic from the packaging immediately prior to installation.

A34-11231

- Replace the seals -2, 3 and 4-.

A35-10540

  • Install the two Oil Sump Assembly Pin -T40199- hand-tight as illustrated.

  Note

The Oil Sump Assembly Pin -T40199- prevent the Mechatronic from tilting when it is being installed.

A34-11337

- Replace the Mechatronic evenly and install the bolts -6 and 7- hand-tight.

- Remove the Oil Sump Assembly Pin -T40199-.

- Install the remaining bolts according to the tightening sequence. Refer to → Fig. "Mechatronic - Tightening Specification and Sequence".

A35-10542

- Install the connector with the Assembly Tool -T40305-.

- Install the transmission fluid pan. Refer to → Chapter "Transmission Fluid Pan, Removing and Installing".

Install the oil pan with a new seal and tighten to the tightening specification. Refer to → Fig. "Transmission Fluid Pan - Tightening Specification and Sequence".

A35-10541

- Fill the ATF. Refer to → 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission 0CK; Rep. Gr.34; ATF; ATF, Draining and Filling.

  Note

  • If the control module or the mechatronic is replaced, only prefill the ATF. (Filling quantity 3.5 liters (3.69 quarts) )
  • The ATF level can be adjusted after operating the control module.
  • After working on the DSG Transmission Mechatronic -J743- the function "control module, replacing" must be performed. Refer to Vehicle Diagnostic Tester.

Procedure

- Connect the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester.

- Select Diagnostic mode and start the diagnostic.

- Select the Test plan tab.

- Select individual test button and select the following tree structure one after the other:

  • Drivetrain
  • 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission 0CK/0CL
  • 01 - OBD-capable systems
  • 02 - Transmission electronics 0CK
  • 02 - Transmission electronics, functions
  • 02 - Control module, replacing

- Checking the ATF level. Refer to → 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission 0CK; Rep. Gr.34; ATF; ATF Level, Checking.

- Install the noise insulation. Refer to → Body Exterior; Rep. Gr.66; Noise Insulation.
