Audi 02E Direct Shift Gearbox
Audi 02E Direct Shift Gearbox -
Design and Function
The current transmission market in Europe is primarily manual transmissions. However, the markets in Japan and the United States use primarily automatic transmissions. Both of these transmissions have benefits and drawbacks.
Manual transmission benefits:
- High efficiency
- Driver control
Automatic transmission benefits:
- High comfort
- Ease of use
Based on this information, Audi set out to design a transmission that combined the best characteristics of each of these transmissions. The result is the Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG).
The dual wet-clutch design and automatic shifting programs of this transmission will satisfy the automatic transmission drivers demands of high comfort and ease of use. The fast and smooth shifting capabilities, which can be controlled by the driver, satisfy the manual transmission drivers demands. Also, this transmission offers fuel consumption characteristics as low as most vehicles with manual transmissions
Audi Self Study Programs are designed to help the Audi dealership technician prepare for intensive factory training classes. This book provides introductory information regarding the introduction of new features, designs, and functions.
Audi Training Literature is not a Repair Manual. For maintenance and repair work, always refer to the current technical literature.
This technical training is based on information available at the time of its original publication and assumes that repair work will be performed in a dealership by a qualified service technician.
Audi is constantly updating its automotive systems and designs; therefore, this booklet may not cover components or systems that have changed over the course of the vehicle's production, and will not apply to vehicles produced after its publication date. It provides conceptual background for the professional automotive technician rather than specific service instructions.

Audi Service Training literature will be most useful for those seeking a better conceptual understanding of Audi's innovative design and engineering. While it is not for vehicle repair, it is more technical than most sales literature, and it provides a useful theoretical background for using repair manuals.
