    Difficult to select 1st gear, when starting. B7

    Hello all.

    Can anyone help with some advise. I have just aquired an RS4. I am having great difficulty selecting 1st gear when the car is cold, or from starting. It does select but you have to apply some pressure. Does anyone have any ideas or experienced the same?

    Cheers

    Hi Mate

    I will be interested to see what they say.

    I have since noticed when the weather is cold and the car is cold it is also difficult to select 2nd. Once the car is warmed up it seems alot better.

    Good luck with your car.

    Cheers

    Hi Guys

    I have spoken with Audi Watford and the technician believes that there is a modified gear linkage available for the car. He is looking into it and will let me know. In the meantime the car is booked in for next Monday. I will let you know what happens
    Cheers

    Hi all

    well took my car into hudds audi on mon with a few faults.
    one of my problems is hard to select 1st to 2nd harder when cold.
    and notchy going into 2nd even when warm.

    had a call today to say they put a new pipe on slave cyl as per audi.uk

    now they are taking the box out as it hasnt fixed the problem..
    so see what they do, strip the box or fit a new one?

    also would like to see if they put a new clutch in ?

    I've noticed this a bit lately too although I've put it down to the higher viscosity of the gearbox oil at lower temps as it's not really noticable once the car is warmed up. I'd be interested to hear if there's an upgraded linkage available.
