VW Case Study 13: Mechatronics Failures, Replaced In A Day

Any avid fan of Volkswagen would rant about their experience with mechatronics failures

The term, “Mechatronics” derives from a combination of the words, “mechanics” and “electronics”.  

In the Volkswagen Scirocco, the mechatronic module is structured with the electronic transmission control unit, sensors and hydraulic control unit as one compact unit.

The clutch and gearbox units in the DSG are operated hydraulically. The function is performed by the gearbox mechatronic module housed in the DSG.

The Mechatronic module performs complex shifts operations.  The gearbox control communicates constantly with the engine control unit and the “communications” determines the ideal point at which to make a gear change. In short, the Mechatronic components represent the brain of the gearbox DSG and can be installed independently of the gearbox.

It seemed inevitable that Mr. Tay’s Volkswagen Scirocco needed its mechatronics replaced.

First thing first! Have the Scirocco lifted for an overall check for other potential failing components before focusing on replacing the mechantronics.
