VW MQB DQ200 Gearbox Replacement with Launch X431 and X-PROG3

LAUNCH X-PROG3 has an important update- VW Audi MQB gearbox replacement.  With this important update, after replacing the control module of the transmission, which is commonly installed in various models of the VW Group, it is now possible to adapt it to the vehicle by using the X-PRO G3 together with X431 tablets (X431 PAD V, PAD VII etc).

(Before the update, only a limited number of control modules were available). Not only new but also used control modules can be adapted. The BOSCH engine control module can also be adapted to the vehicle, both new and used.  According to a LAUNCH study, as of May 2021, no other competing tester manufacturer’s product can do this.
