Have a 06 vw Jetta tdi with 02e dsg auto transmission. The DMF was failing making a bunch of chatter at idle but otherwise the transmission ran great. While I had the transmission out I decided to throw new clutch packs in since Raybestos Powertrain Frictions/Steels where $200 shipped. Afterwards I did a VCDS recalibration and now the I'm having what I believe to be slipping and chatter in every gear. It's driveable but definitely need to resolve the issue. Any advice?

Did you setup the clutch clearance and basket endplay correctly?

Sorry for the late response and thank you for your helpful question.

No, the original basket was used I simply removed the used K1 and K2 Frictions/Steels replaced with Raybestos Powertrain Frictions/Steels. Talking with APR as well as Raybestos, they state that if you are not changing the basket it is not required to take measurements for a different shim/circlip. If you replace the entire assembly new as offered from VWAG or use a different basket than what was originally in the transmission you must measure and calculate shim/circlip clearance. I am certain that the basket is properly assembled since I have serviced quite a few although I will be removing the DSG unfortunately since I haven't been successful in finding the culprit of the slip/shutter. I am very particular and thorough about cleanliness, accuracy and tolerance. Everyone makes mistakes so I'll check it out. Just to be safe I am going to check the tolerances on the basket to verify the original shim is still in spec.

Regards,Bo

The clutches have a certain spec as well. Too much Airgap can cause shutter and slipping. Like any clutchpack. There is a reason VW, TVS and others sell them as a complete basket.

Don't do another recal. Go drive the piss out of the car in drive. Lots of up and down through the gears. If it can relearn the spacing it will just change pressure and volume to stop the slip. It does take some time for it to learn tho.
