    confused third gear vibration

    hey folks.i have a 04 plate 1.9 cdti sri vec c with a rather anoying third gear gear vibration. when slowing down in third gear if i let my foot off the accelerator there is an all mighty vibration through the gear stick. not felt in any other gear. its in with vx at minute to have this fixed but they are telling me that they are waiting on new gear selection cables and an engine mount. bit of a stab in the dark me thinks. has anyone come across this before on their travells?? if so what sorted it?? ohh by the way its a 6 speed manual box as if you hadnt guessed!
    cheers

    The cables and rear engine mount are totally feasable as the cause of it, not a fob off in my opinion..

    When you say vibration, do you mean it's actually visibly moving, or you can feel it?

    If it's what you can feel and it's only gently vibrating, then I think you'll find all of them do it, certainly any manual 'boxed car I've driven anyway.

    If it's a harsh vibration, then I reckon they're on the right road.

    Thumbs up third gear vibration

    hi. yes the fault was eventually sorted by another vx dealer. turns out as suggested that the third gear synchro was worn causing the gear to vibrate when slowing down(or coasting down). as the car was stil under warranty managed to get a replacement box out of the. bonus. alo had the flywheel replaced due to a knock on taking up drive and had them replace clutch at same time. driving as it should now. appolligies for never posting the outcome before!!

    cheers
