    The F40 gearbox (what you have - especially the Wide Ratio version fitted to the 1.9/3.0 CDTi) seem to be prone to this. Some members (Ian C for one) had the gearbox on his 3.0 replaced eventually as it got worse. The F40 (Close Ratio) in the 2.0T can be a bit notchy, and some members I think have had problems, but not as much as the Wide Ratio one if I recall.

    Have a search around for gearbox crunching and it should bring up a few threads.

    That's Ian's case for starters - but type in 'gearbox crunching' into the search window and you'll get ten threads pop up - some more relative than others.
