A6 / S6 (C5 Platform) DiscussionDiscussion forum for the C5 Audi A6 and S6 produced from 1998-2004
The ATF used in these transaxles isn't electrically conductive. Inside the transaxle, the terminals of each of the solenoids are open to the ATF they are bathing in and they don't short out.
Speaking of which, there are photo albums online from a transmission shop showing the various stages of disassembly of the transaxles in a 2000 A6 4.2 as well as a 2000 S8 where both V8 powered Audis employ the 5HP24A.

Note: I'm not affiliated in any way whatsoever with the shop in question or its clients. They just happen to have an impressive collection of pictures of various makes and models of cars and trucks to look at.
