    Default Notchy Gear Change...

    I bought my 05 1.9CDTI 150Bhp Vectra about 3 weeks ago now. Love the car, but have one minor gripe, the gear change. The gear change feels so notchy when changing betwewen any gear. It almost feels as if the clutch wasn't fully engaged when changing gear.

    Is this normal? anyone else experienced this? or is this something specific to my car and therefore maybe a fault?

    Cheers,

    Cheers for the advice Dwabo,

    So I guess I should take it to my dealer, ask them to take a look and hope that they know what the problem is and how to fix it?

    yep definitely...take it to the dealer and ask them to have a look.

    on a cold morning the gear changing is worse, especially the low gears, but i think yours sounds a bit more serious than that.

    That's a problem with most of the manual gearboxes in the Sig I think, I have a 3 litre diesel and its a **** change.

    I would also advise getting it checked out, but it's most likely "how it is" as it's cable operated (so they tell me) - and its a pig to fettle.... Old Honda's were the same (oh how many times i took my prelude to the dealer for gearbox problems!)

    Get the clutch bled, I had a notchy gear change mainly from 1st to 2nd when cold, took it to VX and they said thats normal,

    Took it to a local garage and paid £25 to have the clutch bled and it was fantastic,

    Its been A1 ever since,

    Vx told me that it was normal 2.5 years ago.

    I said that the linkage needs altering and they told me that as the car was just over 12 months old they would not alter for me - I would have to pay for an hours investigation and the labour to alter.

    I said .... so wwhat is this then knackers the gear box .... they said that they would then replace it under warranty.

    Following from that conversation I never went to a Vx dealer again and have had the car serviced by and indepedent guy since .... hardly notice the notchy gear change now, I change a little earlier
