Q: Transfer box gone on Audi A4 DTM - how much to repair? 2006 Audi A4 Quattro

asked by on

Grinding sound underneath the car for a few seconds then pulled over . Looked under the car and couldn't see anything wrong. Got in the car put it into gear let up the clutch and nothing. It won't move just makes a slight groaning noise . Has anyone an idea of what the price would be to get this sorted out? Many thanks Jason.

My car has 101250 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hello - if you are able to release the clutch in any gear, and get no motion, a shaft or final drive gearset in the transmission has failed. The only real hope here is that a shifter cable has failed instead, and you aren’t actually engaging gears in the transmission - some part of which is seriously broken if so. I recommend a car won’t move when in gear inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
