Basically the car won't move in any gear, occasionally lurches. My plan was to drop and and drain the pan inspect for metal then check the sleeves and replace the solenoids. If the car still didn't move I would replace the entire mechatronic unit or transmission gear box.

I already purchased the solenoids for the mechatronic so I may go ahead and replace them too while I have it off the car but I was thinking this sleeve might be the culprit. Cracked on both sides and inner piece was no longer attached.
How old / many miles are on that sleeve? How often. Did you change the trans oil?
