    Default Reverse gear

    Hello Im new to this site. I have only had my car for about 2 weeks or so, but I find when I try to get reverse, there is a crunch from the gearbox. Its like Im not putting the cluch all the way down (but I am). My wifes Corsa C 1.2 dose it somtimes as well. If I put it in reverse slowly its ok. Has anyone else found this? Its a Vectra C Exclusiv 1.8 Face Lift. Thanks

    Might sound daft but do you pull the ring type thing under the gear knob upwards when you engage the reverse gear. I remember a mate at work had this problem with a ford till I pointed this out to him, just a thought.

    Just a thought . I didn,t expect you to be as daft as not to know how to put it in reverse. I wonder if the clutch needs bleading[air in the system] or maybe the clutch is worn out has your motor done many miles.

    Have you tried to double de-clutch before you put it in reverse. When my wife has difficulty geting her Vectra B in revers I tell her to try to double de-clutch it.

    Remember, reverse has no syncro so it may well crunch a little when going from secone or third when stopped to reverse.
