01J Gear-Ratio Error

During the recent Showpower Expo in Dallas, I was speaking with a good friend, Eddie Rose, from the UK who works on many 01J/0AW Multitronic continuously variable transmissions in Audi vehicles. He informed me of a problem he ran into while working on one of these that I just had to pass along to all those who are working on them here. This problem had Eddie stumped for a while but he finally sorted it out, and it was, of course, a simple solution to what had been a puzzling problem.

Understanding Gear Technology

The transmission-repair industry is all about gears. The word transmission means transmitting or sending, and that is exactly what an automotive transmission does. The transmission sends the power produced as torque (turning force) by the engine and transmits it in a usable form to the driving wheels.
