Thread: B5 A4 Blown Tranny?

  1. Default B5 A4 Blown Tranny?

    Hi guys,
    Today Iím pretty sure my transmission or centre diff exploded.
    I was driving normally, like a grandma you could say, and I made a u-turn and had to go to full lock. After straightening out it started jumping and bucking. It started with one. But got worse and worse in about 100m. I pulled over and now it wonít move at all.
    In any gear once the clutch is engaged it makes an awful grinding noise and doesnít go anywhere.
    I havenít read anywhere of this happening to anyone and thought these transmissions are known to explode?
    What baffles me the most is I wasnít driving quickly or launching or anything. Simply in first gear making a slow u-turn and something seemed to have popped.
    Any help is appreciated.
    Finn.

    And on that note,

    Anyone got a b5 1.8t Quattro Manual gearbox they would like to sell me?

    Might just be the clutch... Get it to an independent to check it out...

    Thanks,
    Just installed a brand new clutch and flywheel 2000km ago. Clutch seems to be working as it should. Either way Iím pulling it apart before making anymore assumptions. Would just like to see if anyone else had gone through the same thing,
    Cheers.
