Hi everyone
I have seen a few similar problems posted here but cannot find a solution.

My DSG is acting up slightly and I am worried it will get worse.
  • when I start the car, I put it into D, it connects the gears but then it instantly disconnects. I have to press the brake again briefly and then it works
  • accelerating in D from standstill makes the car judder violently as it pulls away .. almost like the car is about to stall. Solved by putting it in S (because of higher revs?)
  • now recently it is also seems to drop out of gear briefly when driving only to reconnect half a second later.
I am hoping a software tweak can resolve this (at least with the second point)

The car has 160.000km on the clock and is about 9 years old.

Thanks for any help or advice!

Welcome
What DSG is it? Six speed wet or 7 speed dry? May be easier to say whether you are driving a diesel which has the six speed or petrol 1.2 which has the seven speed.
If a wet box has the oil been changed?

It could be clutch pack but sounds more like mechatronic failure
Thanks for replying. If I took it to an official Skoda Dealer would their computer diagnose the problem? I have tried to get people to look at it here in ukraine but either I haven’t explained it properly or they don’t know what to do about it. The car always comes back the same.

It does sound like a mechatronic issue and possibly failure of the hydraulic pump or accumulator within the mechatronic. This gives problems with clutch operation and gear selection.

Do you get any flashing lights on the dashboard? Maybe the current gear number flashes or PRNDS flashes?

There are fault codes associated with this and a Skoda dealer or other garage with the right equipment should find them if they have been stored.

It may be worth trying to find a gearbox specialist. They often know more about the DGS than most dealer 'technicians'

Try to find someone to look at it who knows what they are doing, Skoda and and most other garages will replace the DSG or Mecatronic units but there are places that can repair what is needed inside the units at a very reduced price that Skoda would charge.
