    ANYONE GOT A NOTCHY BOX

    Naughty its not what you think
    I just thought i would ask a question

    When cold the gear changes can be quite notchy and i have to sort of nurse it into gear. First to second is usually the worst or going from second to first, when fully warmed up it is fine. Its not bad or anything. im just wondering if a change of gearbox oil may help.

    has anybody else experienced this going on and can it be rectified. also when i accelerate away the gear stick moves backwards a small amount. could it be an engine mount or something that is worn causing the gear change issue?

    any advise more than welcome

    sorry forgot to say its a 6 speed manual connected to a (ake) 180hp quattro tdi

    My first gear change of the day into second is quite a notchy one, it certainly doesnt go in as easy as when the gearbox is warmed up. Like you, when it's warmed up then the gear changed are fine.

    I also have some gearstick movement, if I hold the selector and accelerate there is noticeable movement, it's not got any worse in the three years I've had the car, and I replaced the gear box oil when I got it. One of my electronice engine mounts is a bit intemittent so maybe this isnt helping.

    I'll have a look and see what the interval is for changing the gear box oil, even if that doesn't help it's bound to reduce your concerns.

    Mines been like that since I bought it 12 months ago and was also thinking about changing the oil.

    But it looks like it may be a common issue.

    Its a std "feature " of the 01E 6 speed box sadly. It can be made better by changing the oil to FULL synthetic. It won't be perfect. but it will be better.

    It was a night and day difference,not perfect though

    It's not really a problem for me in honesty.

    Have had , Ur quattro 20v RR , B5 S4 , B6 Tdi fwd , V5 bora , 80 Quattro v6 to name but a few all of them especially the quattros have slightly notchy boxs when cold give them half a mile or so and there fine
    also ambient temprature at the moment is low so oils will be thicker in the mornings especially which will cause a notchy change
    dont worry about it only worry if it does it hot .

    My 6-speed manual 2.5tdi Q 180 gear box is also notchy when cold especialy in the lower gears.
    I put ATF into the gear box on my last car which sorted out some notchyness in that (lexus IS200 with a quick shifter) and its quite a common thing to do on manual gearboxes that are notchy or clunky I believe
