    Default Struggling to change gear...

    Happy New Year all....have a strange issue with my Vec C V6 CDTI, i'm really struggling to change gear, 1st is pretty much a none starter, when starting off in 2nd (if i manage to get it in 2nd) without even lifting my foot off the floor the car is pulling forward, with engine off i can engage all 6 forward gears and reverse without issue. It seems to have started all of a sudden, could this be a thrust bearing/clutch issue? If so what kind of cost am I looking at to repair?

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    Sounds like your clutch isn't disengaging when you put the pedal down.

    Most likely to be a clutch master cylinder problem, or a leak in a pipe.

    can you engage gears if you pump pedal 3 or 4 times
