hello everyone, I have been lurking on here for about a month or so gleaning as much info as I can on owning my new (to me) 53 plate 1.9 auto galaxy, Anyhoo, I had it fully serviced and the drop links done by a mechanic (friend of mine) AJS autos, and had the gearbox oil changed because it seemed to have a little slip into 3rd gear, well, since that was done it has gone from a slight slip in 3rd to chunking (sometimes quite violently) into Any gear or sometimes smooth into any gear, very confusing, a point of note! when the drop links where being done by AL (mechanic) he had to access them by removing the battery and a few other bits BECAUSE the dumbwitt who sold it to me had lost the locking wheelnut key so he couldn't get the wheels off to get to the DL's the conventional way, here is the crux of my question, could the chunking problem be electrical OR does it sound like my auto box is fubar'd?
thanks for any advice and Great site for info   8-)

Hello Tony  welcome5

Firstly am intrigued how removing the battery or even the tray would help on removing the drop links.

When the guy drained the gearbox gearbox how much fluid did he get out and more importantly how much put back.
Was the procedure followed for refilling and checking level?

Don't condemn the box yet, gear changes are influenced greatly on how the engines running/performing

Hello Chrispb and thanks for the welcome  :)
apparently AL took 2.5ltrs out the first go (he said it was 1.5ltrs shy) and he put 3.5 back in! but the second change he got 5ltrs out (by way of the torque converter) and put 5ltrs of dextron3 back in, anyways, he said because of the missing locking wheelnut he couldn't get the front wheels off so he did a bit of 'manouvering'  under the bonnet to get at the top bolts??? does this sound right? and reading one of your Old posts on another thread you gave some advice that jerky gearshifts might be electrical or some electronic unit near the battery rather than a fubar'd autobox, or am i CLUTCHing (no pun intended)  ::) at straws :lol:

The fluid capacity is seven litres when you drain fluid you will get out three and a half litres, only half the fluid.
In order to get the fluid clean you would need to repeat the draining/refilling process several times with a drive in between.
The crucial  part is to get the level correct and this needs to be done  when the fluid is between 35 and 45 deg C

As for the drop links they can be changed without removing wheel, are you sure we're talking about the same thing

I think so Chris, its the bar with knuckles either side that get destroyed by all these bluddy speed bumps isn't it?.

and could taking mucky oil out and putting clean oil into the gearbox cause it do thump violently into gears (that it wasn't doing before?) ... I thought that he had put the wrong oil in at first (Dextron 2) so I got him to do it again a couple of days later with Dextron 3 but its till chunking into gears, especially 3rd, but like I said before, it doesn't do it every shift! but enough to make ANY journey an absolute misery, when it does it im expecting the gearbox to drop out, Lol
any ideas?

Here's the view with the wheel on, there's absolutely no advantage in taking out the battery.

https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/ford-galaxy-reference-library/re-drop-links-how-to/

As I said before the fluid level is critical, to much is as bad as not enough, if your 100% sure it's correct then the next step would be to scan the diagnostic system with Vagcom/VCDS lite to see if any faults have been logged with the transmission and engine

If he said he had to remove the battery to change the nearside droplink what did he remove to change the offside  ????

As Chris said get it plugged in to VAG and get the level checked at the proper temperature.

Possible gearbox internal wiring loom or faulty solenoid.

Why do you say you have no tiptronic are you saying the gearlever when in D will not slide to the left to engage tiptronic?

aaaahhh, I thought tiptronic was them hand paddles at the steering wheel on some cars (not mine tho) so please forgive my ignorance  :-[
anyways, how will I go about finding out if its an internal wiring loom or solenoid? is it a gearbox strip or can it be done with diagnostics again?
does this sound like it could be cheap or crappy quality oil in the gearbox by any chance????

and where is the best place to get the correct tranny oil from? ford want £18 pr liter and VW want £15 per liter, is there any other stuff that's the same Without the huge dealer markup added on?

You will need to remove the sump which is on the forward facing side you will then see the internal loom connecting all the solenoids, it may just be a loose connection on the solenoid or faulty or a break in the loom.
I used mercon V in mine which was recommended to me but when I had the  gearbox reconditioned a few years later they put in dexron 3

so is the loom replaceable without the gearbox coming out Chris?
an I have read Not to use mercon v for some reason or other?

what do you think?
and does the 'solenoid 10 short circuit' that the VAGcom found sound really bad to you???

The fault code suggests solenoid or loom as being open circuit they are removeable without removing box but you will need to remove bumper to give better access. The fluid you suggest is designed for that box so should be good. It was a good few years ago when I used mercon so looks like a dedicated fluid now available  at a better price.

I haven't had an auto version for a few years now but it should be in the vicinity of the gearbox, there may be more than one.  Could be worth nipping the battery and tray off for better access.  May not be the cause but worth reseating and eliminating the possibility.

106,000 but it only started to chunk into the gears After it was serviced last week, IF you are about to get yours serviced I can only advise that you get it done by someone who Knows what they are doing and MAKE SURE you get the Correct AND best quality oil you can buy!
im convinced poor quality oil was the start of it (I have been known to be wrong before tho) ;) Lol
best of luck

i did wonder  but at the mo    fingers crossed  at 73000  it as smooth as a bald mans head,  i saw an ad in the paper for the local vw dealer who wanted £165 for a fluid change service on most vw    but i wonder what their view is   if as the thing seems to be  you need 2 or 3 changes to totally changed the fluid   i can't see a main dealer saying   bring it back next week and we will do the job again,   would even most normal garages do this i wonder
