    R-tronic: replacing clutch position sensor G476

    removed airbox etc...


    i can see the sensor and the hole it goes into the tranny is there no way to replace this guy without pulling off the whole tranny?

    seems kinda crazy that it would be the same amount of work as a clutch change.

    thanks

    You have to split the transmission from the engine, the sensor (G476) is mounted on a bracket (1 bolt) which is located by 2 dowel pins. A special tool is recommended for removing the sensor bracket T10055. The sensor is $210 U.K. price. My suggestion if your mileage is high enough, is change the clutch at the same time, if R-Tronic, change the clutch release bearing as well. Overall an expensive job!

    -you can see the clutch through the trans to check the clutch life on an R-tronic (read somewhere thats only on a manual)

    Make sure nobody throws in an extra piece, you´ll spend the rest of your time with the car wondering where it came from when it´s left over at the end of the job kkkkkk.

    Hell yeah man! Love to see others getting in there and fixing it themselves. Any pics of where the inspection hole is to see the clutch?
