    No fault codes (I have VCDS), problem worse in humid weather and/or slight incline with front lower. Seems related to Stability control - when ABS/ESC came off when wheel speed sensor failed, problem stopped until sensor replaced. Reset DSG twice, changed clutches and transmission fluid. None of...

    Can DSG reset to re-adapt clutches worsen shift quality?

    DSG Shift quality has worsened over last few months (speed of shift, bucking, clunky etc.). Each only happens occasionally but definitely more often than before, specially in cold weather. I've driven other Golfs like mine without these issues. Clutch pack & DSG service was done 6 months...
