Hi, I recently had gearbox sump gasket replaced along with filter and oil. A8 4.2 now developed clunk from 1-2 & 2-1 up and down gears. Otherwise very smooth as normal. Appreciate advice ..

It would help to know year and model (and therefore gearbox model) of your A8.
The 5HP24A in the D2 series (circa 1997 to 2002/3) has several issues and are commonly regarded as "fragile".

I have never experienced this when changing my fluid (I have a 2001 S8), but I have read reports that some filters have pick up tubes that are too long and need to be trimmed back or the gearbox can suffer from fluid starvation, particularly when pushed.
Also check that the gearbox sump has not suffered from any impacts. The fluid pick up is roughly central to the sump at the deepest area (both the oil drain and fill plugs are higher).

Was the work performed by an Audi or ZF specialist? There is a particular fill procedure which must be followed.

The gearbox can also suffer from pressure spikes (particularly in early models) which can damage the Clutch A basket, which is used for gears 1-3. However any damage here will result in immediate limp mode (all gears lit up on the DIS screen and gearbox locked in 4th gear).

2002 audi a6 transmission is in safe mode. What

hi, what it usually mean is that you have shifted down in to a lower gear whilst the revs where to high so then your gearbox goes into safe mode to protect it from further damage the only way to reset this is to take the car to a main dealers and have a diagnostic check done.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2004 1.9Tdi Audi A6 engine stutter/intermittent cut-out

It sounds like who ever rebuilt it forgot to line up the gears in the gear box. You might see if they can redo it for ya, tell'em to take there time and slow down, an you should be alright.

3.2 tiptonic gearbox slipping on high rev changes. what is the cause ?

How many miles are on the tranny? Any modifications? Tiptronics are NOT overbuilt like other parts of the car. They do fail. Usually, however, you will get a stored code or all the gear indicators on the dash come on at the same time. When that happens, start looking for a new/used tranny.

I have been having similar problems. The clutch is slipping as thats how you get the variable gears when in full auto, but this is where the problem comes from, some garages (auto gearbox specialists) are now able to fix it. Do not go to Audi as all they do is replace the gearbox (very expensive). There is no quick fix though! Sorry for the bad news!!
