Hi all,
i just bought my 2010 Jetta fitted with DSG 7, i still didnt go more than 100 km with, completely new
i hear a rattle in the engine when the car in neutral and sometime on bad roads
it's hard to hear when the car is moving or maybe it doesn't exist
i am new the DSG gearboxes and i feel like the sound coming from gearbox area
car is new, 2 days use only
is this normal for the DSG 7?
thanks

Jetta 1.6 Petrol Engine
DSG 7 speeds

Re: (CCRlineBlack)

then i'll wait and see
however everything is performing ok and in order
i am just worried because of what i always hear about DSG transmissions
but i hope that the new DSG 7 is better than the first model of the DSG
thanks

Re: (obadvw)

i think i cant wait because of this more details
1- the rattle goes when i increase the RPM little bit over 1000 RPM
2-rattle became constant when i layoff the throttle on any gear, i hear it constant and not random like .sound like (Krrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..) and when i apply throttle again it goes and comes back again when take my foot of the throttle pedal
i tried in D and Sport mode and tiptronic, it's in all modes, tried it on second and third gear and happens with both gears when i take my feet off the throttle
is this a DSG failure symptom or this is something else !!

Re:

Hey man.
4 days ago, i got a seat ibiza 2010 1.6l with a DSG7 and it did the same sounds you described above!
went to the dealership like 4 times, and they are saying it's totally normal (which i don't beleive).
They even made me drive another car with 10 kms and it did the same sounds!!!
i can't beleive a brand new car with the latest german gearbox technology should do sounds like this!!
Shame on you VW , AUDI and SEAT!
Shame shame shame shame shame!!!!!

Re: Re: (najiabinader)

hello man;
JUST today the dealer called me and told me that this sound comes from the DMF (Dual Mass Flywheel) and they say that they will change it
but how come all cars come with that sound !!
do you think that it's normal like what they said specially cause you drove another cars?
i notice it happens spcially when engine is up to operation temperature, when it's cold nothing i can hear
i am checking with the dealer here on saturday and will come back with results
however the sound is like clattering or rattle that is random on specially on idle, i dont hear it when the car is moving

Re: Re: (obadvw)

i don't know what the dual mass flywheel means, but i will inform my dealer about it.
it's very lame that all cars come with this sound!
mine is very noticeable, like pipe clanking together, and it occures specially on bumpy roads while gear is changing, plus the shifting from 3 to 2 is very harsh, like you pressed the brake pretty hard!!!!
I only hear the noises on 1st, 2nd , 3rd and 5th gear!
i do beleive that it's a bad batch of DSG 7!
the problem is that my dealership is denying the fact that this is a problem!!!!
Shame on them!!!!!

Re: Re: (najiabinader)

tell him about the flywheel thing
about the harsh shifting from third to second..usually the DSG is doing like engine breaking,so maybe this is normal and maybe not,tell your dealer about it
i hear the sound louder also on road bumps like there is something loose
if you have another dealer try him, here i have only one is Saudi Arabia
i think we have the same issue exactly...maybe it's NORMAL

and maybe not
its hard to live with that clattering noise all the time if it is normal !

Re: Re: (obadvw)

hey man.
over here in Lebanon, it's the same thing! only one dealer!
i don't think the rattling noises are normal!
but what buggs me the most is that they are saying it is something normal, and trying to convince their customers this!!!
A gearbox that does noises is not a normal gearbox!!!!!!!!!!!
please keep me updated when they change the DMF or whatever! i hope this fixes the problem
Best of Luck my friend!

Re: Re: (obadvw)

nice to meet you too mate!
originally i am from lebanon and i live in lebanon

i doubt that they will change the whole car!
let's hope the problem will go when they change the DMF.
how many years of warranty do you have on the car?

Re: Re: (obadvw)

3 years is good, and the extention is also good!
here in Lebanon, i got only 2 years warranty, but after my yelling at the dealership regarding the sounds in the gearbox , they gave me an additional 1 year warranty on the gearbox!
but i'm still not satisfied, since the noise didn't go away

crappy seat
