The oil in the Mechatronics box should be changed as well.

For the time being Panel...hope it'll be short term,end of Jan...unfortunately kitchen fitting was on the list of non essential services,i can see how small business's can easily go to the wall,suppliers looking for their money but no money coming in even though the business was booked up till March.

You can call him a cunt 'cos he's a cunt... if you can't think of your comrades, comrade. What's the top rate these days?

Probably less than 28% of what you were getting on the tools... and you reckon the cunt hasn't cut your money. I think Tierney's still working if you wanna work for immigrants wages...

Yeah.....i wouldn't work for Lee anyway,dealt with him over 20yrs ago,made quality carcasses  and was always amenable to making offsize units...albeit a typical(wealthy) north county Dublin yokel.

No. I have the 7 speed "Dry Clutch" DSG in my current Octy. That's a sealed unit and should be left alone... unklike it's predecessor, a 6 speed "Wet Clutch" version which requires very frequent fluid changes, every 60,000 kilos or 3 years I think. My last Octy was a MKII manual. There's no spec for changing the gear oil in that but I got the clutch changed at 150,494 kilos and asked Stuart (in Euroclutch) to change the GB oil as well. He said it wasn't necessary, noting that they never give any triouble if left alone but undertook to do it anyway just because I wanted it done. I followed the same policy with the Octy before that as well, a MKI stick shift.
My last yoke was the 7spd dsg (1.6.- was previously warned about that particular model. Obviously didn't listen). Bought it second hand from main dealer. Never again. Cunt of a yoke. Gearbox went, but was covered by warranty cos it was within 6 months of purchase, so they begrudgingly replaced. Fuckin second one went a year and a half later. Not covered this time. Cost thousands. Put me off autos for life. Back to manual (VW Jetta new model, an identical car to the Octavia as far as interior and engine go) and never looked back.

Yeah, I've heard some horror stories with DSG boxes over the years. Was yours a wet or dry clutch version, Jonno? Posts on specialist fora suggest most of the trouble occurs with either making a bollix of changing the oil in wet clutch versions - it's imperative that the level is set at a quite specific oil temperature which can only be properly ascertained using main dealer diagnostic equipment or Ross Tech or OBD Eleven. With dry versions changing the oil at all seems to be akin to signing the box's death warrant, the book says it shouldn't be changed and it really shouldn't! In any event the clutch mechanism is a wear and tear item and a damn expensive one as far as my yoke is concerned, described as a twin clutch with one clutch for odd gears and another for even gears... so, I'm hoping that'll be a once in a (vehicle) lifetime operation at most. I think Korky suggested they're good for 300,000 kilos plus - my yoke is unlikely to reach that kilometreage so, if it proves right, I'll be happy!

Why did you buy a VW that's "identical" to the Skoda... surely a Skoda woulda saved you 4 figures?
