Hello all,

Wondered if anyone has had the same issue. Recently I purchased a 2006 Passat B6 2.0t from my niece. It was broken down and I needed a vehicle. I was able to fix the car and get it running. I noticed that after the car warms up, it shifts hard. I did read other posts that this could be the valve body.

Has anyone else replaced theirs and who did you buy from? I was told mine is the 09G with part number 09G325039BX.

When I look for the BX online, its limited. There are allot of others. Do you know of others that will fit this vehicle?

Thanks

how many miles? any transmission service records?.....most of the time this "hard " shifting is due to low fluid level. before I would consider a tranny replacement I would do a tranny service (filter and fluid change), easy to do from an experience level, just be methodical and follow protocols, as a sidebar to this reply, you say "when it is warmed up" there is a thermostat within the tranny, and not sure where the cooling radiator is for an 06 but fluid (after a certain temp.) gets pumped into the system to heat exchangers, tranny fluid radiators etc., , so if low ,once up to temp , it becomes even lower. Depending on your geographic area. rust belt etc. a common leak point are the connections between tranny radiator and hoses coming from the heat transfer unit. (drivers side , bottom corner of radiator)
