This is the DOWNLOAD link for the 0AW MULTITRONIC CVT 8 SPEED TechTran. Audi's transmission models VL380/381 is commonly known as the CVT Multitronic eight Speed 0AW transmission. It replaces the previous VL300 six speed Multitronic 01J transmission. This 8 speed CVT is currently being used in the following vehicles: 07-16.....Audi.....A4 06-16.....Audi.....A5 09-16.....Audi.....A5 Sportback 11-16.....Audi.....A6 10-16.....Audi.....A7 Although there are similarities between the 01J and the 0AW, they are significantly different. The purpose of this seminar is to familiarize you with the internal components of the 0AW transmission. The Audi Self Study Program 228 (SSP-228) can be easily downloaded from the internet which provides a detailed look at the 01J transmission. This can be used along with this handout to compare the similarities and differences between these two transmissions. The 0AW Multitronic is a front wheel drive CVT transmission and will drive as such in the "D" range. In the driving program "S", eight stepped ratios are shifted automatically. These same eight stepped ratios can be manually operated in the Tiptronic mode through the shifter or steering wheel paddles.
The transmission weighs approximately 262 lbs. (118.5 kg). The maximum gearbox input torque is 380Nm (280 ft. lbs) as opposed to the 01J which was 330Nm (243 ft. lbs). Input torque is delivered through a dual mass flywheel which drives the input shaft. The forward or reverse clutch is used to connect the input torque to the variator (primary and secondary pulleys and chain). When in gear (forward or reverse), at a stop, the clutch is released to prevent engine stall. There are various drive-off strategies in which the clutch is engaged to launch the vehicle. For example, in the economy drive mode, a small accelerator pedal angle during the drive-off process, the transition from engine idle speed to drive-off engine speed is performed at low revs. Short clutch slip times and low engine speed allow for smooth engagement and higher fuel economy.
