I was texting with someone else and he hasn't answer my question but he did charge me what kind of help is this cuz I already explain him everything the problem was and now someone come and ask me something and I need to pay 38$ I call this a fraud
VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 3 years ago
sorry for the delayed response. you can have a compounded issue here. first known issue is the pollen filter housing is leaking. the gasket needs to be replaced on the housing with butyl to keep from water entering the cabin. the water leakage has contaminated the trans module because the module is located under the passenger front floor carpet. so the carpet needs to be removed to extract all water out and inspect wiring for corrosion. so it may be an expensive repair
