Dual Clutch Transmissions (DCT)

A vast number of modern vehicles are now using dual clutch transmissions to further improve efficiency as well as driver experience. These setups use two sets of clutches in the gearbox units. One clutch operates and engages all even gears and the other clutch controls the odd number gears.

 

Here at Eco Torque we can deal with every aspect of these dual clutch transmissions, whether you have a Ford Powershift Gearbox or one of the VAG family DSG units, we can help you with any problems you are having.

 

Below are some of the services we offer with these gearboxes. 

Wet & Dry Clutch Replacement 

Due to the complex nature of the dual clutch transmissions, repairers must have passed relevant qualifications and testing in order to be able to buy the replacement clutch components from LUK.

This means you can feel confident knowing your clutch is being replaced by a competent authorised repairer.

Eco Torque can diagnose and replace both wet and dry clutch systems in the dual clutch transmissions and perform any and all adaption procedure with dealer level diagnostic equipment.

Gearbox Oil Service

Regular maintenance on the dual clutch transmissions is key to avoiding costly repairs. Many of the issues that effect these gearboxes can be avoided by regularly changing the gearbox fluid.

Although only the wet clutch systems have an official oil change guideline from the manufacturer at 40'000 miles, after many years of repairing manual gearboxes, we can not emphasise enough the benefits of changing all gearbox oil for all transmission types at regular interval periods.

We currently use state of the art equipment to flush and clean the internals which can cure some faults that are caused by clogged components restoring your gearbox back to original condition.

Gearbox Bearing Replacement

A humming, whirring or droning noise could be a good indication that the gearbox bearings have an issue and may require replacing.

 

As the dual clutch transmissions are both manual and automatic gearboxes at the same time, bearing failure can be an issue that can be repaired with our extensive remanufacturing background.

Full bearing rebuilds are available as a standalone service or can be done at the same time as clutch pack changes, should it be required.

Gearbox Control Module

This unit is the brain of the gearbox. The unit comes under many different names including, TCM (Transmission Control Module), Mechatronic Unit and TCU (Transmission Control Unit). It controls all gearbox functions to deliver a smooth and efficient drive.

However, with such a complex piece of hardware, the units sometimes experience faults with solenoids and other components.

These can usually be repaired at a fraction of the cost compared to a new unit.

Eco Torque currently outsources the repairing of the units themselves, however we can facilitate the removal, shipping, repair liaison and reinstallation of repaired units.

Gearbox Software Update

Eco Torque is able to offer essential manufacturer software updates to certain models of the dual clutch transmissions.

These updates can extend the lifespan of the gearboxes as well as cure various faults that effect each unit. This also means you can have main dealership service without main dealer prices.

REMEMBER WE ALSO OFFER

PRODUCT WARRANTY

All our repairs come with a standard 12 months 12'000 mile warranty for peace of mind. There are however some instances were we offer longer warranty periods. Enquire today to find out more.

WARRANTY CLAIMS

Do you have extended warranty with your vehicle? We can take care of any warranty claims when repairing your gearbox making the process as easy as possible. We deal with all major providers including the AA, RAC, Autogroup and many more.

COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS

We also offer repair services for commercial vehicles including LCV's, however larger vans or 4x4's can only be recovered by a third party so would inccur a charge.
