Oops? That's good or bad news? Was your oil pressure too low? Did you ask how many cranks they have replaced?

What engine do you have in your A6?

I'll see if I can get a part number for you.

Sorry, could not find a part that is 100% correct.

Attached is a screen capture of drive gear removal. Print it and
take it to the dealer as proof that the gear can be changed.
