Common problems with CVT Audi 0AW Transmission

The enhancements made in the 0AW transmission model significantly increase the life of the unit in comparison with the older 01J counterpart. However, this isn’t flawless. The problems that arise, unfortunately, are still very similar:

  • Failures of the TCU (transmission electronic control unit)
  • Mechatronics in general, chains, and pulleys.
  • Any rebuild 0AW (VL381) involves the mandatory replacement of all consumables: gaskets, solenoids, filters, seals, ejection pump.
