So bought an S8, gear selector problem.

Hi all.
Feels good to be back in a S again, bought a pre-facelift S8 over the weekend but does have a problem.

Basically the gear selectors have all shifted forward to the point where you cant get Park or Reverse and Drive is now where Reverse would be.

Ive been told it could be the gear selector unit itself playing up so ive ordered a new one to try that.

The gearbox was refurbed with receipt 10k ago at a cost of 1400.

Any ideas chaps?

Lots of helpful info at audipages for the a8:

Does sound like the gear selector. Is it a PF D2?

I'd go over to the A8parts forum and post there, lots of knowledgeable people there.

That said the selector mechanism (if that's what's wrong and it's a D2) must be pretty much the same as loads of A4's and A6's.

There was a recall for a slipping cable adjuster - might be worth checking if it's been done as mine hadn't in 2010. Most likely if it's had box work they've just not put it back properly though
