DCT 7-speed autobox shaking violently !!

Post by lebear » Mon Feb 01, 2021 1:23 am

We have a 2019 1.3 160 php DCT 7-speed autobox, and we are happy with the car... but! we have a big problem ...has anyone experienced that the dct auto gearbox suddenly can shake violently right the moment you start driving from a standing stop for example up a hill ?, so it really shakes like an old oiled or worn up clutch!
It happens once in a while with our car, especially when it is operating hot. Our big problem is that it rarely does and we have not yet managed to present our workshop with the problem .... so they do nothing ... :(

LeBear, welcome to the QQ Forum ! We have the same QQ Tekna + which is now 1 year old and have never experienced a Gearbox Shake it is still extremely smooth. Now this might be totally out of order but I see that you live in Denmark we are in Berlin which is not that cold but it is now down to - 8*C . It is not allowed to use Salt on the Roads here so there is a lot of Gravel laying around. I have noticed the tendency with Winter Tires to Wheel Spin sometimes which is like a Body Shake but not the Gearbox which I also thought it could be - Just a Comment Dave 😉

I know well the feeling that the car "steps" on wet roads especially when the rubber becomes "hard" at low temperatures .... but I have experienced this phenomenon all year round and also if the front wheel has been turned all the way to the sides by started sentence, so much we can complain about the weather, but unfortunately not this.
But this morning I have received a call from my workshop who would like to inspect my car. They confirm there have been similar cases of these "riots" on the early models of the DCT gearbox. The gearbox is reportedly not from Renault as many here suggest, but rather from German Getrag. The fault was supposed to be in the car's clutch itself, which has been changed on some of the early models. In two weeks, it is planned that the car will come to a workshop, so we will have to see what they find out. The finger is crossed!Image

Getrag DCT 7 speed issues on the Mercedes A180d, A180 & A200 forum.

Our car has now been to a workshop and as they allreay have told me, they knew the "fault" well! The workshop says that our car is from early 2019 and it was the first production of both the 1.3 engine and the DCT gearbox and the error is "corrected" on subsequent models than mine? ... Nissan will not solve my problem, but they have had the "computer" on and raised the idle from about 750 to about 1000 rpm, it thought they could solve my problem with the clutch point that makes the car shake. It has not helped at all and instead the car seems to be driving with a choke on a cold winter all the time .... :-(

I can see from the post above from the Mercedes owners, that the gearbox problem also exists with them!

Does the DCT box have paddles to change gear too?

.
No, it doesn’t.
And furthermore I agree with some of the comments on the linked Mercedes forum in that I see no delay in starting off from stationary.

Perhaps we are lucky but we also have had absolutely no problems with the response of our DCT from Standstill, gear selection, etc. In fact yesterday from cold after 0,5kms I stopped, the “Stop Start” Cut in which I did not Note, I then accelerated the “Stop Start” Cut back in and I got Wheelspin (Gritty Roads) - Dave 😊

I had the same issue with my gearbox, the car is just 12 months old now. There was severe intermittent clutch judder when setting off, especially ib slow moving traffic. The dealer I bought it from took a look and initially couldn't replicate what I'd told them, but did say to return it for a longer test that Nissan had suggested. The result of this was to replace the gearbox under warranty. This was about four months ago and there have been no issues since. The lady from the dealer, Westway in Altrincham, was very much on the side of the customer which I appreciate very much as Nissan were disbelieving at first. I heard her on the phone to Nissan who said there were no issues with the gearbox, and she said, are you sure about that as there are now three waiting to be replaced including this one. I hope you get your car sorted out Lebear.
