Hi guys can you help?
RS5
Tooling on, breaking down gradually, smell rubbery type smell that made me think tyres or clutch, a little smoke i thought, THEN.... Dash reads NO REVERSE GEAR BUT I MAY STILL DRIVE?
CHUGGS ALONG THEN WHEN SLOW AGAIN NO GEARS AT ALL.
left with ignition off in pure shock really as just paid 17k for it, tried it again found second gear and managed to get to hotel.
Do you think clutch gone?

Hi Jay,

We could use a little more info to try and narrow down the problem. I'm assuming if it was £17k it's a B8/B8.5, and assuming it say's no reverse gear that it must be an auto? I.e. S tronic gearbox?

If you're able to read the codes, check them against the list on my blog post about Mechatronic unit failure and repair, that warning message is one of the signs, which unfortunately in your case appears severe.

Hope this helps and you can get it sorted.
