    Default A1 2012 Gearbox Leaking.

    Purchased a new A1 in 2012, had a few issues failing sensors, new injectors etc. Now the DSG is pumping oil out of the breather hole on top of the box, so much now its undrivable. Have been told its the Mechatronic unit which is leaking and pumping its hydraulic oil into the gearbox past a failed seal. Audi have said it needs a new Mech at $3700 plus fitting.

    My questions are has anyone had any experience with this problem or know anything about these failures. Has anyone pursued Audi outside warranty to have them replace the Mech and been successful. Has anyone successfully rebuilt or fixed a leak in a mech unit?

    Thanks guys

    Does it have full Audi service history?

    Have you approached Audi Australia for any 'goodwill' assistance?

    Update: Audi Australia have agreed to replace the mechatronics for no cost, as long as we pay some of the labour component. This has been a good outcome considering the car is 18mths out of warranty.
