I have a car with the VAG 7-speed dry clutch DSG gearbox, which is a preselect automatic gearbox with two drive shafts and two clutches.
The clutches started to squeal on taking up the drive, and to some extent when shifting intermediate gears, getting progressively more noisy. I took the vehicle to the main agent and they replaced the clutch pack under warranty at 49K miles.
The chief technician told me that this gearbox has been discontinued. I previously ran another model with the 6-speed wet clutch DSG gearbox to high mileage with no clutch problems.
Now, the squealing has begun again, after less than 20K miles, and the car is out of warranty. Can I expect to have to keep replacing the clutch pack on this gearbox at frequent intervals?
