Just went through this on the wife's wagon. If indeed you are
seeing filing type "stuff" be sure to check the transaxle.
One problem with the oath I took to NEVER go to an Audi dealer
for repairs is that I replaced the transmission and transaxle--not even
knowing of the recall. Stupid is as Stupid does. Oh well.
Ask your Audi dealer about recall years. I think you may be in
the right area. If not, there is a place in Chicago that sells rebuilt
Trans for like $650. I don't remember the name, but I will check and see
if I still have it. After stealing a transaxle from a wrecked 85 5kt I
have, I went the boneyard route on the tranny, paid $450 w/ 60k on
it--101 day warranty. Be sure to look at the fluid before buying it. If
they won't let you, go somewhere else. When you replace it be sure to
put in new fluid & filter. Good luck and be patient. The transaxle was
a real mutha to replace. Remember, Massive force x heat = easier removal!
