[Transmission] EGS 6 auto box
#1
I started this thread in the Chat area ...sorry.
 So will start again.  I'm having trouble with a smooth start  in 1st and in reverse  as in juddering ! I must look like a complete idiot . Ive spoken to the dealer who sold it me , he says that they are sometimes like that. However some of you seem to get a smooth trasnsition and although I think Ive got a lot to get used to its not just me. !
 So, Ive been doing a bit of trawling about and came upon this forum and talk of the EGS6 in other Citroen models where there is reference to a software update and reprogrammed gearbox grid and clutch biting point .

Does anyone know anything about this ?

I take it you have a semi auto? If so they need re programming every so often from what i have learned on this forum.

In my experience, reprogramming will cure it for a short while (weeks).
Ultimately the clutch and flywheel will need replacing.
We don't bother with the reprogramming anymore as they always come back agin the same.

its done 30,000 miles and  its a 2012 model.  So, Lighty do I take it back ? The dealer who sold it me told me to get back if I wasnt happy. I wasnt anticipating spending alot on it since my 2004 and 95,000 mile  peugeot is currently going like a bird ! It dosnt make sense does it.? I know you take chances in life but I could have bought a cheaper model to take a chance. What are the approximate costs of the software update and the worst case scenario you describe ? thanks

My 2012 has done 126k+ (due for service @129k) has a judder at times , at its last service they checked it out saying it was within the permitted tolerance.  The problem is I keep judging it against my old 2011 Grand Picasso  but have been told its not the same system. 

 footnote. . As I was to travel Portugal (where I am now)  I took out the AA European break down cover which includes replacement parts up to £500 so have peace of mind

I took my Peugot in for MOT this morning and had a chat with the bloke who owns it , he specialises in Peugeot Citroen and has  said much the same as  Lighty ,he can 'nip' the clutch up which might help a bit , he cant do the software upgrade as it needs a main agent and the problem will get worse not better and will need a new clutch eventually. We'll see what happens when I get back to the seller , who assured me of his good reputation and his wish to see his customers satisfied. !

If you like your Berlingo in every other wayperhaps the dealer will replace the clutch for you FOC ?

The reprogram is not a software update, it reprogram the gearbox grid & biting point, so it will help if the clutch is worn, however if it judders, this cannot really be eliminated, cost is @£60.
A software upgrade can be done if required, we have pass though capability & can connect direct to the p.s.a system which allows any updates to the latest spec for that car. We buy a token €30 per hour and then charge our time accordingly, so @£100 all in.
A new clutch , flywheel & bearing is about £900 & they drive beautifully afterwards.
I would ask for a refund for the whole car or a new clutch if I had just purchased a car and it had this issue, because in the end you will have to pay for it.
I also believe that the C4 Picasso & Berlingo systems are identical.

thanks for the update everyone. So, I got onto the dealer and said that I did not like how the gear box was performing at road junctions and confined areas and also told him that some people  :-D had told me it wasnt normal to judder alot in 1st and reverse. I also laid it on with a trowel that he had said he wanted me to be happy with it.  The upshot is that he has booked it into the main Citroen dealer in Norwich on Wednesday . Perhaps Lighty, you could give me an indication of what they will do , what I should ask and what I should beware of. This is my one and only chance at satisfaction.
