Audi A2 Gearbox

When you take apart and look inside a gearbox, you will find a huge assortment of parts in a fairly small space. Among other things, you see :

In an Automatic Gearbox there is an ingenious planetary gear set, a set of bands to lock parts of a gear set, a set of three wet-plates clutches to lock other parts of the gear set, an incredibly odd hydraulic system that controls the clutches and bands, a large gear pump to move gearbox fluid around. Manual gearboxes you will find a lay shaft, collar and folks.

Manumatic gearboxes Manumatic is a portmanteau word, combining the words manual and automatic, that applies to a class of automotive gearboxes. Manumatic most often refers to an automatic gearbox; with some elements of manual transmission control (e.g. a gear can be manually selected instead of having the computer control all shifts). This type of transmission was introduced in the beginning of the 21st century. Different car manufacturers have been using a variety of labels for their manumatic transmissions, such as ‘tiptronic’, ‘Geartronic’, ‘Touchshift’, ‘Sporttronic’, and others.

All A2 gearboxes have a 5 speed automatic fitted.

Just like that of a manual gearbox, the automatic gearbox’s primary job is to allow the engine to operate in its narrow range of speeds while providing a wide range of output speeds.

Without a gearbox, cars would be limited to one gear ratio, and that ratio would have to be selected to allow the car to travel at the desired top speed. If you wanted a top speed of 80 mph, then the gear ratio would be similar to third gear in most manual gearbox cars.

You’ve probably never tried driving a manual gearbox car using only third gear. If you did, you’d quickly find out that you had almost no acceleration when starting out, and at high speeds, the engine would be screaming along near the red-line. A car like this would wear out very quickly and would be nearly undriveable.

The key difference between a manual and an automatic gearbox is that the manual gearbox locks and unlocks different sets of gears to the output shaft to achieve the various gear ratios, while in an automatic gearbox; the same set of gears produces all of the different gear ratios. The planetary gear set is the device that makes this possible in an automatic gearbox.

When buying a used car, the gearbox is one of the most important parts to check. We strongly recommend having a used car inspected by a mechanic before buying it, it will well worth it. When buying a used car first checks the used car history records; it may save you some time and money. If the used car history report shows that the car you want to buy was used as a rental vehicle or has been involved in an accident, there is no point to even look at it. Ask the previous owner or salesperson if any repair has been done to the gearbox. If the gearbox is already rebuilt, try to avoid buying such a car. It’s not like all rebuilt A2 gearbox will have problems – some of them work even better than before. The problem is that not all gearbox shops can do equally the same high-quality job. And since there is no way to verify if it was rebuilt properly or not, it’s better not to take chances. Another thing to be concern about, ask if the car you are looking for was used for towing a trailer. Gearboxes wear out quicker in many cars that were used for towing a trailer.

There are a few words in the language of auto repair that make car owners want to crawl back into bed, and “gearbox” is at the top of the list. There’s something about that mysterious box underneath your car that incites fear. Unfortunately, most repair shops know this, and will take advantage of the situation by reaching deep into your pocket.

Your gearbox is a remarkable contraption. Somehow it can shift your car from gear to gear, knowing how fast you need to go and how quickly you need to get there. What goes on inside is a mystery to most. Unless your thirst for automotive knowledge borders on compulsive, you can leave it a mystery.

Gearbox problems fall into two very similar categories:

  • Won’t go.
  • Won’t go smoothly

Most a2 gearbox problems can’t be fixed by the average do-it-yourself. There are just too many specialized tools and pieces of equipment you’ll need, and buying this expensive gear just to screw up your first three tries at fixing the thing just doesn’t make too much sense. When your a2 gearbox gets tired, you’ll have to buy another and we can supply that need.
