Customer Question

My son had a VW T4 Automatic which he sold after he had a gearbox rebuild but the vendor has come back to him saying that she had to have the gearbox rebuilt again as a new ECU was not fitted with the original rebuild. The original rebuild was done after a VW diagnostic test came up with 00258, a solenoid problem.
Is it essential that a new ECU should have been fitted and if not fitted would it have damaged the rebuilt gearbox so that another rebuild was necessary? This is very urgent so would be very grateful for a quick response.
