The OAM coded 7 speed DSG as used in VW and AUDI vehicles can experience a cracked accumulator housing fault leading to a loss of power due to the transmission neutralising and logging error code P17BF. The accumulator circuit is under extreme high pressure and caution must be used when repairing. It is not uncommon to see the pan cover distorted and raised from its mating face, caused by the force of the accumulator failure.
