    Crunch going into third gear?

    Hi fellaz, I have just noticed today a rickety crunch noise when going into third gear at high revs. Its seems ok at lower revs and the other gears seem fine. Its just making it in third after about 4-5k revs. The car is barely in warranty and just wondered if anybody has any ideas before I book it in?

    A normal characteristic of the S3 gearbox, really need to press the clutch all the way down to avoid crunching imo, I experienced this a few times myself. I have noticed a huge improvement since fitting a Powerflex dogbone mount, not crinched the gearbox since as far as i can remember, but the downside is slightly more transmission vibration in the cabin when the cars idling.

    I've had the same problem too. It only happens when I accelerate quick e.g. changing gears, de/pressing clutch quickly (mainly in 2nd and 3rd).
    I think its due to the hydraulic clutch not responding in time as Ive read from other car model tech specs.
