    Hi All,
    I have a 2001 New Beetle with auto gearbox problem,
    It has an FDG 4 speed Auto fitted,
    The problem I have is 1st & 2nd no issues, no issues selecting the gears, no clonks or snatching, the problem I have is its slipping really bad in 3rd, no grip at all just revs away to the point where the engine check light comes on.
    Had the codes read which came up with 00625 and 01192
    can anyone help/advise?

    also can other auto boxes be interchanged or do I need another FDG box?

    any help or advice welcome

    Just read this problem...I had a similar issue with our 2001 Beetle auto. Had the trans. fluid and filter changed sometimes this works ( worth trying ) but unfortunately for me it was a gearbox issue. VW will charge you about £3200 for a replacement box, in my case I sourced an independent auto gearbox specialist and had a recon. box supplied and fitted for £2100, mind you that was 3 years ago. Unfortunately we lost confidence in the vehicle and after about 6 months after the gearbox change we sold it.
    Hope this helps, unfortunately with an Automatic car with a problem gearbox unless you sell it very cheap ( giving it away ) its about as useful as a chocolate teapot.
