DSG Gearboxes

Many modern cars come with double-clutch transmissions (DCT or DSG) for improved acceleration and faster gear changes. Like all gearboxes, these suffer from wear and tear as well as other forms of damage. Our engineers are skilled in all kinds of manual and automatic gearbox repairs, and we can offer a complete assessment of the work needed on your vehicle. If required to, we can repair and replace DSG gearboxes from various manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Ford, Kia, Renault, Seat and Volkswagen.

We install new and reconditioned 6-speed and 7-speed DSG gearboxes, and mechatronics, for vehicle owners in all locations around the Dartford area.

S Tronic Gearboxes

S Tronic gearboxes are a type of DSG fitted to certain Audi models. Common issues include jolting gear changes, a loss of power and a loss of torque when in reverse. At Dartford Transmissions and Autocare Ltd, we provide full repair, rebuilding and replacement services for all S Tronic systems.

These gearboxes have a dual clutch system and a direct shift gearbox so that you can switch between, or combine, manual and automatic transmission.
