  1. A5 General Q&A
    Hi, I’m looking for some help please, I have a 2014 A5 S-line 2.0 diesel, auto (8 speed, I think). I’ve noticed that when stationary, if I change from park or neutral into Drive, there is a change in sound, possibly from the gearbox, not loud but noticeable, almost like a mechanical spinning...
  2. S5 General Q&A
    Good afternoon all, I currently own a very slow 2014 S5 coupe, bringing up the "Gearbox fault: You can continue driving, no reverse gear" message. With an Audatex code scanner the only fault that won't clear is "P173D00 - Gear position distance sensor 4 implausible signal". Googling around I...

    Hi everyone, I took my engine out and while I'm at it I'd like to address the KMV (0B4) transmission not going properly into 3rd and 4th gear with the clutch fully pressed. The issue started with only bad shifting into 3rd gear and lately, it has progressed to 4th gear too. Does anyone know what...
  4. A5 General Q&A
    Hello! I’m new here and I got my first A5 a few months ago, it’s a 3.0 2009 Quattro. I was wondering how I can check the type of shifter or gearbox I’m still confused on how to call it so bare with me. Is it a multi-tronic, tip-tronic or S-tronic? Is there a way I can check that out. I also have...

    Hey guys I've taken my car to a garage after this error but they didn't actually look at the gearbox but rather drain the transmission oil and tell me because there are tiny shavings I need a full rebuild, flywheel and clutch replacement - maybe I do but want to check with the experts first...

  9. A5 General Q&A
    Hello, I’m looking for a used car and I was thinking about A5 2012-13. I found a few that are really nice but I don’t know how and what to choose! I’ve read that one of the best combination it’s 2.0 tdi manual (some saying that it’s kinda lazy) or 3.0tdi s tronic or manual. I want a car that...

    Is it normal for An Audi A5 (2009 3.0TDI Manual Quattro 40k miles), to have a very stiff and clunky gearbox? According to Audi Bexleyheath the test driver/engineer said that Audi has admitted that they are a problem with the A5's, and I will have to live with it. I think they are fobbing me off...

    Hi, Had my new (2 years old) A5 2.7TDi Multitronic for 2 months now.
