removing tiptronic transmission

Recommended Posts

After having just forked out $3000 on a ABS Controller replacement, it looks like I may need my tiptronic transmission out to have it rebuilt....

During the removal process, is there a potential to cause an RMS leak with all the "yanking and twisting"? That would be the last thing I need.

Hope I don't jinx myself.

The RMS is a manufacturing defect not an assembly issue. Although some RMS get installed backwards (small %). If your not one of the unfortunate ones to get one that is marginal or out of tolerance then you should be just fine. RMS is not induced, it is something your have from the get go, just takes varying amounts of time to actually see it. Wouldn't it be great if they could determine a priori if a car is marginal or otu of tolerance on the assembly line? Ooops, that would cost $$$ to do and re-install of a new engine if found. Not something PaG is likely to do.
