    Hi all,

    Was wondering if anybody here can answer a query i have regarding my car. When in gear, say second, and I push on the accelerator the gear knob jumps very slightly forward. Upon taking my foot off the gas it goes back.

    Is this normal? Is it a sign of worn gearbox mounts?

    I had a similar issue like yours with my rs4, i since fitted 034 motorsport engine/gearbox mounts which have made a big difference and i am also changing the gear shifter linkage which will again tighten and shorten the throw and eradicate the slight play.

    Drop me a pm if you want any pointers.

    thanks.

    when i say jump i may have been over exagerating slightly. It moves maybe 1cm if i dont have my hand on it, if i have my hand on it i can feel it try and move.

    I may just monitor the situation if its not something to be overly worried about.
