Volkswagen DSG Transmission Explained ~ with Engineering Explained


Hey Everyone. You may remember a while back I posted some picture of an upcoming video collaboration with Jason from Engineering Explained. Well I had Jason out to the garage and we shot some fun videos of the DSG transmission. Rumor has it, there will also be an outtakes video coming soon 😉  It IS out, just scroll down to the bottom of the page 😛

In this video we look at:

  • How DSGs work
  • 2 part input shaft
  • DSG Duel Clutches
  • DSG Power flow
  • DSG Shifting
  • DSG Control
  • Mechatronic unit
  • and more

Trouble viewing? Watch “DSG Explained” on YouTube

I also followed that up with “Viewer Questions on DSG Transmissions, Podcast Episode 30“. On that show, I answer all your questions on the DSG transmission. You can also see our other collaboration video on the VW Vr6 engine. If you have more questions about DSG transmissions, use the contact me form, or email me Charles(at)humblemechanic(dot)com with DSG QUESTION in the subject.
