Hi guys, just joined the forum and would appreciate some advice.

My V10 touareg 05 reg has developed a problem changing up from 5th gear to 4th under kickdown as if something is sticking. I have read a few threads on this forum to suggest that the soleniod cluster could be at fault. Can anyone tell me if this is an electrical or mechanical fault and, if VW recognise this as a common problem (which it does seem to be).

Mine is obviously out of warrantee, but will VW offer any help? How have you got on with this problem? Is there a way of accessing the cluster to check for something simple like a wire off?

Look forward to your replies and thanks.

Hi Royboy,

I would recommend taking it to a dealer/independant VW specialist as they will be able to check if there are any error codes being thrown up with a vagcom unit. This thread gives some more info regarding a similar fault with the box - viewtopic.php?f=41&t=6899

HTH,

Rich

Thanks alot Rich,

I contacted VW and as much said the same as you so probably not so serious as I thought.

Does any know how to set the dash clock? Not much on it in the book.

Thanks again

Roy

Roy,I take it you've reset the gearbox?
Ignition on,don't start keep, accelerator pedal down to the floor for 60 secs.
gearbox is then rest.
Don't say it is this ,but this is first port of call.
