The TSB 11-12-13 is specifically for the "automatic" dual clutch transmission as this is the only one that allegedly had this issue commonly enough to require a technical service bulletin. Are you losing engine oil? If so from where? Is the engine consuming the oil (burning it), leaking it?

The tsb mentioned is referring to an internal transmission seal leaking which leads to an external transmission fluid leak, this fluid leak allows fluid to contaminate the clutch pack destroying it.
