Default Valve Body Replacement

Looking to replace my 2005 New Beetle transmission valve body and was wondering the sequesnce of events after I install the replacement? I'm going to assume that I would have to go into the TCU/M with a Vagcom and reset transmission? Has anyone done this before, would love to hear the in's / out's of the process- thanks in advance!

This is where your thread should be, and I wish you good luck. I deleted the other thread. Please do not duplicate threads.

Are you sure it's your valve body? I have read a bit more about the 2005 tiptronic transmission problems and some people replaced the entire transmission and it didn't fix their problem so they went to the dealer and they told them it is the TCM. So they got it replaced which finally solved their harsh shifting issue. I would have a shop first diagnose what is really wrong with your transmission before spending money on parts that it doesn't need.

Yes it's best to reset your transmission. Use VAG-COM, go to transmission module, then Adaption(10), select 001(as I remember), then it will tell you that it's going to reset the TCM. Then confirm will be fine.

This may sound really silly, but please keep in mind I don't knokw a lot about cars...does this work if you don't replace anything that they find faulty? They say there's a problem but they don't know what it is. I thought valve body (see my most recent post). Do you think if it is just reset it might be back to normal?

Won't work if you don't do any work. Generally transmission computer reset has to be done if you replaced valve body to let the computer learn the parameters of your new valve body and clear the parameters of the old one.

I've heard someone's trans in limp mode he reset the trans it went back good for a short time and then limp again. Generally if there's a transmission problem you need to cure the problem, either mechanical or electrical. If you don't do any work about the problem it won't cure itself.

No, there is no reset button that magically will fix your transmission problems. You should still be under warranty so they should fix your transmission regardless if they are too stupid to figure out what the heck is wrong with it. I say go to another dealer. At least you have a choice here in Indy.
Falcone or Tom Wood. Personally, I never liked Tom Wood. Actually, since you are in Indianapolis take it to EPWerks! They are a Fantastic VW/Audi shop that does excellent work for a fraction of what
the dealer will charge. http://www.epwerks.com/ Call either Ian or Kevin and they will take good care of you.

That '05 may not be under warranty, mine was only under warranty by a couple of months, it was built in Jan '05, in-service date April 25th. Just had the valve body replaced today.
