    whats the mileage on your car smudge? sounds like a worn gear selector / layshaft problem with the gearbox at worst or maybe clutch bearing? or possibly just needs fresh oil.

    Is it hard to select the gears?

    is it cold when doing this ?
     
  6. The car has done 37k and is 9K from a service - Yes it is much worse when cold and clunky when selecting gear. But still bad when warm - Eg If you take it upto 5000rpm in 1st when you go into 2nd you can hear it crunch - at low revs it not such a problem. Why only these gears ? It's at the stealers on Thursday but I guarantee they will say "we can't find the fault" you watch - it's defo there. what do you reackon now ?
