DSG Repairs

The DSG gearbox can be found in a wide range of Volkswagen (VW), Audi, Skoda and SEAT vehicles. The DSG system is a reliable and durable gearbox, however there are a few common faults that can be diagnosed and repaired. In most cases the main dealer will condemn the complete gearbox and the costs involved can surpass the value of the car they are fitted in. Here at Regal Autosport we specialise in DSG Repairs. In 98% of failures the DSG unit can be repaired at a fraction of the cost of a replacement gearbox. DSG repairs are carried out in house by our experienced technicians. The Mechatronic unit is the most common component to fail, although this is sometimes a result of an internal component failure. All Mechatronic repairs come with a Lifetime guarantee.
