Default How to replace Torque Converter :/

So 6 days ago I bought an Audi! 2002 Audi A6 Quattro. I went throught the car, it was checked, test drove it for a good 20 minutes and had no problems, sweet deal!

I now have 3 check engine lights but 1 I know needs to be dealt with now. P0741, torque converter lock up or something of that sort.

How do you replace the torque converter, I need a step by step guide, a link to a page or whatever as I plan to do this service myself if possible.. I am 19 and in college, I can't afford to pay a service shop $2000+ to fix this car, I don't even have that much money and need to get to class!! Thank you.

A 2002 is a C5.

Best of luck, and maybe the '97 Malibu will get you there n the meantime ?

Your 2002 A6 is a C5 platform (1998 thru 2004). This forum is for the C6 A6 platform, which is 2005 thru 2011). Post on the C5 forum, and also ID the engine you have.

Mama always told me, "if you don't have anything nice to say...blah blah blah blah...."

You get the point.
