I am having trouble changing gear in my Manual 2005 2.0TDi A3 (6 speed).
When I try to put it into gear (hot or cold, but slightly worse when cold), it takes a fair amount of effort to get it in, quite often grinding. I have recently had the Master Cylinder, Clutch & Flywheel changed and the gearbox (gears and syncros) refurbed; this was due to the inability to select the first and reverse gear at times).
When I first got the car back it had a rubbing ('snickering') sound when the clutch warmed up, the tech who worked on it removed the backing plate on the clutch to fix this.
2 months the car ran fine; however, last week the gears got progressively worse. There is also a sound (like a 'knock') when I release the clutch with no gear selected. Also, there is a noticeable vibration in the clutch when in gears 1 - 4.
Any ideas team? ಠ_ಠ
