Strange gearbox happenings - Help!
Had my S3 3 months now and every now and then, and i'm only talking a handfull of times, if i pull up and put it in reverse, the car really struggles to move in reverse. I'll then select neutral, put it back in reverse and it'll be fine. A week or so ago it did it when i was reversing into my girlfriends drive, so i selected neutral and it was fine until i turned off the ignition and the car let out a fairly big judder. The car was in neutral.
Then, last night at the girlfriends i select reverse and it struggled, so i selected neutral then it gave off a massive bang and judder to which i f*ckin shat myself. I've never heard anything like this from a car. I neutral'd it again and selected reverse and it was fine!!
It may be a coinsidence but it mostly happens when i'm reversing into the gf's drive which is ever so slightly uphill.
Anyone any knowledge of this?
Cheers guys, Paul.
Problems with reversing can show up Haldex (the 4wd system) problems (worth a search). Or the gearbox could just be sh*gged?
