Phaeton ZF 6HP26A hunting RPM

My Phaeton is now 210K miles and has been progressively been starting to 'hunt' when cold. Tries to lockup at low RPM then slip and tries again in a cyclic fashion.

Today we pulled the pan and the transmission fluid is not burnt and still OK.

So we 'serviced' the transmission be replacing the pan filter and new fluid. Apparently these 'unservicable' transmissions are serviced all the time.

Hey presto! Transmission is shifting like new again. Selects an RPM and holds it without hunting.

Thank you Sausalito Imports for doing the work (Bay Area). The car is now perfect again.
