Hope there is a fix for this;

There is a WebViewer for Autocad (.DWG) files. When opening them in a doc library, there are no issues.

However, if i search for a .DWG file, and try opening it there, it will just go to the property page of that file.

Is there any way to add the file-extension to the search index, so that it will open in the webviewer? i found tutorials about SP2010/SP2013, but nothing for SPOnline

You can't change file types from search index in Office 365 SharePoint Online. There is no setting to configure it in SharePoint Online Admin Center.
