I have a 2002, 3.0 Quattro A4 which I bought second hand.

I recently complained about my gearbox making a "clucking noise when I changed down abruptly.

I use a specialist as opposed to Audi direct, who advised me it was the gearbox mounting which was non-existent!!.

They ordered a new part from Audi dreict whi sent out the wrong mounting. This happenined again a second time. Ultimately, Audi came out to look at my car and said that the gearbox was from a 1990 Audi 100. They said it would not affect the performance of the car, but that was the reason for the wrong part being sent out.

I was naturally disppointed to hear this, but accepted it as the truth nevertheless. However, I am not sure whether a 6 speed 1990 Audi 100 even existed. I am beginning to think that mayve Audi used this as an excuse to cover their mistake in sending out the worng part 2 times running - especially as they said that this wouldnt effect the performance - who am I to know?!?

Could anyone confirm if there was a 6 speed model of the Audi 100 in 1990?

Many thanks!

thanks for the reply.

I have since found out that they meant the "casing" was from an audi 100, not the actual gearbox.

Is this possible?
