    Hi guys,

    My car started to judder / vibrate slightly. Only happens when on 2nd gear at very low rpms when accelerating slowly from near no speed.
    It only lasts a seconds and then goes and drives fine.
    All other gears are fine and smooth.
    Had it checked by a local vag specialist and found no faults.
    I had my mechatronic unit done around 2 months ago. Gearbox software is up to date as well.

    Any help much appreciated :)

    Sounds like mine when I had to have the clutch pack replaced.

    Hi mate

    Did you had it only on 2nd gear as well?
    Did it got any worse with time?
    Did new clutch pack cured it?

    It was either first or second and yeah has been sweet as a nut since... I did not hang around getting it fixed so can't comment on the getting worse bit

    Right...

    How much did it cost to get it fixed?
    I still have 2 months warranty on mine so maybe worth getting it done sooner.

    About 1500 notes. Mine came with a 3yr Sytner warranty who covered the cost - but as the gearbox was out I had few other bits done as I basically only had to pay for parts just to be on the safe side

    The clutch that handles the 2nd gear also handles reverse. Any judder in reverse?

    Hi again people...

    My issue still here and seems to get worse now. 2nd gear vibration last bit longer and I do get slight vibe when going to 4th gear as well.

    Can anybody help or advise if this could be something else than clutch?
