I've had my A3 for just little over a week, and I find that the quality and smoothness of shifting the stick into gear has got a bit "clunky" over this short period.
What can cause this?
Does it make a difference if I leave the car in gear with the handbrake taking the majority of the weight on my steep driveway?
does it make a difference that i leave it in first gear when i reverse park sloping backwards?
should i leave it in reverse?
should i not leave it in gear at all?! (bad idea, I left it over night without being in gear and it had slipped about 40cm closer to my garage door!)
I dont think the mileage would be an issue as ive only just noticed this over the week ive had it. but if it does its got 113.5K on the clock! I don't know when (or if!!) the clutch has ever been changed.. but i dont think that could be a contributor (as again for the short period of time it has developed and its not even engaged when this problem is happening!) but then again I know very little!
or could it be something as little as not having adequate oil in the gearbox or something like that?
