Audi A4: Transmission, Installing

Special tools and workshop equipment required

  • Clutch Module Assembly Aid -T40169-
  • Clutch Module Transportation Lock -T40170-
  • As well as all the special tools listed for the removal.

Procedure

  Caution

Risk of damaging the transmission by mixing ATF and transmission fluid (MTF) through the same bleeder.

  • The transmission filled with ATF and (MTF) transmission fluid must be tilted a maximum of 15º in lateral and longitudinal direction.
  • If more of an incline is needed, then the ATF and (MTF) transmission fluids must be drained. Refer to → Chapter "ATF, Draining and Filling" and → Chapter "Transmission Fluid, Draining and Filling".

  Note

  • Replace the bolts that were tightened with an additional turn.
  • Replace self-locking nuts and bolts, O-rings, sealing rings and seals.
  • Secure hose connections with hose clamps that correspond to the series production. Refer to the Parts Catalog.
  • During installation, all cable ties must be installed at the same location.

  • There is a normal "clicking" in the dual mass flywheel with "LuK" centrifugal pendulum absorber.
  • A "clicking" is heard when turning in direction of -arrows- the clutch module -A- approximately every 90º. This noise comes from shifting pendulum masses (centrifugal pendulum absorber) in the dual mass flywheel and is not a fault.
