    I have a problem with the gear changes on car.

    It's a 2004 3.2 and when changing from 1st to 2nd, I get a loud 'clunking' noise. All other gears are ok. It's really annoying now and slightly embarrassing tbh.

    Does anyone know what it could be? I was thinking maybe gearbox mount?

    Mine does exactly the same, at one point I thought it maybe suspension bushes
    As i get the same noise when Going over speed bumps.
    Suppose I'm gonna have to get a professional to look at it.
