S3 third gear problem

    Been noticing that when I push my car and change gear from 2nd to 3rd it crunches, but if driving normally everything is fine.

    All other gears are fine at what ever speed I do.

    Is there an adjustment that Audi can perform or myself?


  2. I read something here on the forum that this was a common problem and that audi had some special oil that sorted the problem out..

    Will see if i can find the thread for you..

  6. had exactly the same problem and it would seem it's quite common on A/S3s and golfs.
    Mentioned it when mine went in for service and they just adjusted one of the gearbox cables - problem solved.
