Logic of naming actuators in VW-group is simple it contains "N" + actuator number. The actuator number is unique. Here you can find fitting location, connectors and some basic information about actuators.
To our mind, actuators information is reference, so there is only simple search by number.
The gear selection valve 1 -N284 is
located on the shift actuator at position -5-.
Risk of injury from highly
hydraulic system; see Workshop Manual.
To avoid confusion between the
electrical connectors on the gear selection valves, they are colour-coded. If
the colour-coding is no longer visible, you must mark the connectors in a
suitable way to prevent confusion between them prior to unplugging them.
