I just have a quick question. If your car has 2nd gear grind - when you let ur RPMs down...how far do you let yours down? My firends GTi has 2nd gear and his - you have to bring it really really low. Just curious. And does your car grind going into 2nd from 1st and third of just third? Mine will just grind going into 2nd from 1st...but my friends GTi grinds both.

Re: For those w/ 2nd gear grind (BlkJettaGT)

you have more than just a syncro you have one going from 1->2->3->4->5 and 5->4->3->2 and when you put it in to 1 i believe, i would have to go look at my assembly at home though, actually i dont think you do cuz ur supposed to mesh 2nd if its not going into 1st
well anyway, basically there is 2 syncro's per gear, you can have a bad up and a good down is what im trying to say

Anyone here ever try GM snycro mesh ? I've used it in Honda trannies and it took care of the grinds. It's a little expensive but worth a try.

My car only grinds 2nd when its cold, after i warm it up its fine.
