Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: General notes

Gearbox
The torque of the engine is transmitted via the flywheel to the dual clutch gearbox. The flywheel and the dual clutch are joined together by a toothed connection. Together they take on the function of the dual-mass flywheel.
The gearbox is structured like a 7-speed manual gearbox. Through opposed hydraulic actuation of two multi-plate dry clutches, it is operated like an automatic gearbox. In other words, the gears are engaged automatically or manually via the Tiptronic system. There is no clutch pedal.
When the ignition is switched off, both clutches are disengaged.
   

General notes

The gearbox has an opening in the housing.
–  Ensure that no small parts fall into this opening during repairs -arrow-. Cover the opening if necessary.

 
     
Gear oil
The 7-speed dual clutch gearbox has two separate and different oil systems. One for the gear oil section -arrow A- and one for the hydraulic fluid section -arrow B-.
Only the types of gear oil available as a replacement part may be used for the dual clutch gearbox 0CW. Other oils will lead to malfunctions or failure of the gearbox, part number → Electronic Parts Catalogue (ETKA).
The oil level in the gearbox cannot be checked. The correct gear oil level can only be achieved by renewing the gear oil, e.g. if the gearbox is leaking → Chapter „Draining and filling gear oil“.
