    New to the group thanks for adding me

    Got my first rs4 best thing I’ve ever done lol

    Got a little problem tho........

    as I put her in 2nd she stays in it fine going up the revs but when I let them drop back down in 2nd gear it pops outta gear and jerks back and forth and grinds like the clutch is trying to engaging!! Sometimes just pops outta gear without doing that!!!

    Doesn’t happen all of the time tho and doesn’t do it in any other gears at all!! I’ve read around and could be the gear linkages are worn..... I’ve phoned around a bit and they’ve said could be the gear synchroniser but it’s only happening in one gear and the gearbox sounds fine Apart from this the car is the bees knees!! I’m based in west London area and if anyone could suggest a good specialist or if not knows what’s happened would be great

    Thanks for any help

    Oh dear, that does sound like a synchro is worn, it can be caused by contaminated oil - most likely this will be a transmission out and rebuild job (you'd probably replace the clutch assembly while it was out too).

    Frank - the words inexpensive/repair/Audi are rarely found in the same conversation.
