Re: Facelift Keyfob??

Re: gearbox malfunction

I would ultimately take it to a SEAT dealer as there is a good possibility that they will fix it outside of warranty as this sort of problem was common in the past and SEAT will not want any more bad press about DSG problems. Incidentally the box you have is not the one that has the really bad reput...
