    Question 6th Gear Struggle?

    Got my A3 2.0TDI Sport about a month ago and have always found it difficult to put it in 6th gear. I almost have to force it in, if I lightly "try" to shift into 6th, it will go into 4th!

    I have found it being a lot smoother when I'm going high speeds (ie. from 5th to 6th at around 60mph)

    Is there a major problem with my gear box? Also, 1st gear is a little stiff! sometimes takes me 2 attempts to get it into 1st.

    Thanks.

    Well if you cannot get it in gear without forcing it mate there is obviously something wrong with the gearbox/selector mechanism.

    definately not right, not mechanically minded enough to pin point what it is though.

    Clearly there's a problem....

    I said "Is there a major problem with my gear box?"
