DSG Service for VW’s & Audi’s

On the new VW’s & Audi’s using the Direct Shift Gearbox (or more commonly called DSG) transmission, VW & Audi recommend the DSG fluid & filter be changed every 40,000 miles. S2Dynamics recommends and uses   VW/Audi OE fluid and filters.

Volkswagen & Audi’s DSG transmissions employ a wet clutch design which uses the transmission fluid to cool and lubricate the clutch surfaces. It is absolutely imperative to service DSG transmission regularly which includes replacing the transmission filter along with the fluid, Checking for leaks and Diagnostic codes that may be present without an illuminated warning light.
