Unhappy Rattle noise at 1200 RPM and light throttle (JB4 MK 7.5 DSG) - 09-06-2020, 10:56 PM

Hello all,

I just purchased my 2018 GTI Se with 14k miles on it. Took it in for a fluid swap and inspection yesterday since it wasnít CPO. Installed my JB4 today and ran map one. Did one launch to get logs in map 1 at it went to about 6.2 rpm from 1st the 6k from second in sport automatic mode. Drove for about 30 minutes like usual in drive and eco mode. Then I started hearing a slight grinding at about 40 mph when I put my foot on the throttle to maintain speed I started hearing slight grinding noise coming from probably under the hood. I am able to replicate it by going in manual and putting the car into a higher gear to get the rpms lower then Iíll hear it again. Whenever I seem to go into E or D mode the car seems to upshift to 5th or 6th very fast at low speed (30-40 mph) and I hear the grinding.... I put it into pass by mode (mode 0) and got the same thing... whatís going on here?

Sounds just like this: 2015 GTI DSG noise - YouTube
