    Default syncromesh? what do you think?

    Had the car two weeks and have noticed a slight catching going from first to second. Going from third to second is fine? First thought was syncromesh? Any other ideas or anybody had this problem? Bent gear linkage? Victoria is back to the dealers on the 7th for a check.

    The F40 gearbox (what's in yours) is known for being a bit 'notchy' when cold, particularly from 1st to 2nd. If it's no more than a bit notchy then it's 'normal' - any more than that and another possibility could be the linkage needs adjusting.

    definitely just a bit notchy, the service guy did say they would check the gear linkage. Pulling the caravan for the first time with Victoria next week so wanted to be sure. Cheers M8.
