DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox)
The DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) is installed in Audi, VW and several other European vehicles. DSG gearboxes are a new development in passenger vehicle transmissions and combine the advantages of a manual type gearbox with automatic shifting, plus a double clutch, all operated by a computer and servo motors. The double clutch is the main innovation in a DSG; it speeds up the gear changes and results in quicker shifts.
The DSG dual-clutch gearbox gives the driver the opportunity to experience faster shifting, with an overall driving experience totally unlike a conventional automatic transmission. Twin electronically controlled shafts manage gear selection, always anticipating the driver’s next shift.
Consequently if the DSG presents with a fault it requires a specialist with advanced electronic diagnostic equipment to accurately diagnose, and then correctly repair the fault.
