    Default crunchy gearbox

    another problem to share

    Doeas anyone suffer from a crunchy gearbox between 1st and 2nd, and 2nd and 3rd ?????

    I have a vec 05 1.9cdti sri and when it's cold the box is as crunchy as anything low down. Seems to go ok when it warms up!

    Reason for concern or just a cheeky vec trademark ???

    Thanks

    My gear box is a right pig mate, more when its cold rather than warm, if i'm pulling up to a junction or traffic lights i keep the clutch dipped, cause if i let it up and then depress and try and put it into first its a nightmare

    Mines exactly the same, local dealer adjusted the linkage which has improved it greatly, still a little crunching on really cold mornings. Will get them to look at it again when the weather gets colder.

    Mine does not do that at all, deffo get to the dealers.

    I believe some gearboxes were from Saab & were not up to the job, but were later changed due to the high failure rate.

    Mine changes perfectly in any weather, unless I miss the gate completely.
