A6 3.0 Tdi ZF gearbox issues


Registered User
Hi all.

A6 c6/4f 3.0tdi with a ZF6HP19A auto gearbox.
The car was getting stuck in 3\4th gear and would not change. You could cycle the car on/off and it would vome hood gor aqhole. Then after a coule of days ot has no drive at all. Fluid is fine, took it to an auto trans shop amd they said if they have to remove it to even pull apart and diagnose it will be thousands. So it looks like its not kust an eady fix, so i am thinking of trying to find a used box.

Does anyone know what models use the same box if any? Do i can try and widen my search.


PS: anyone seen any DIY for a remove and replace floating around.

They weren't used in they many models, the A variant was a version specific to the VW group, which rules out all the BMW's the 6HP19 was used in.

I believe most of the 3.0 tdi cars of that era used them, so long as they are the 6 speed. B6/7 A4, Phaeton, A6 C6, A8 D3.

Also the 3.2 FSI in the A6 C6 and A8 D3 might be the same?

There are also other versions of the gearbox in the same cars as well, don't know if these will work in your case.

Hope this helps.
