Audi a4/vw passat Tiptronic Repair
Please visit my website at http://a4audi.com (currently in progress). I am going to start linking all of my videos to this website as well as post how-to documents. Youtube is great for videos, but I'd like to be able to provide text as well. *I apologize for the bad video editing. For some reason when I uploaded it to YouTube the captions I added started bouncing around instead of staying in one place. Hello, in this video I show you how I fix my 1999 Audi a4 2.8 quattro tiptronic. When I bought the car a few months ago I noticed that when I put the shifter into tiptronic mode, it would not activate the tiptronic. This I found out was because my car was missing a magnet, and therefore would not recognize that I was shifting it into tiptronic. There are plenty of DIY's on the internet but I found no videos, so I made one myself :). Here is a link to a very helpful DIY: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?3985321-Tiptronic-Not-Working-99- Audi-A4 This should work with VW Passats's between the years of 1997-2001 with tiptronic as well as other Audi's with tiptronic. Please comment with any questions.
