I got a slight problem with my gear shifting. Everytime i put it in first gear fast, the car grinds, but its okay if I put it in slowly. I'm sure, i got the clutch all the way down. What can it be? Bad tranny? Clutch?
By the way its a G60 that i have.
Its stopped at a light, the light turns green and i put it into first, the gears grind, but if i put it in to first slowly, it doesn't grind. It works fine when i downshift using heel and toe or double clutch. By slowly, i mean i shift it into neutral pause for a half a second then i shift it into first.
so any ideas?
Unless the trany shifts to 2-3-4-5 leave it and double clutch it in to first if you have to. I have a VR6 and if im at the lights waiting it will grind if I shove it in fast. Take is slow, then go fast!
never down shift to 1st. but get in the habit of going 2nd THEN 1st. it stops the mainshaft from spinning and u may never grind like that AGAIN. also good for reverse grinds. 2nd to 1st to reverse. just remember put it in 2nd first.
Not a VW, but if I put it in 1st gear at about 5mph when I'm almost to a complete stop. It slips right in like butter. If I wait until I completely stop its a little tougher to get into first. It has something to do with the speed of the transmission input shaft. This method of getting into first will vary based on the type of transmission.
mine grinds too...well ill shift, say, from 2nd then to first, but it still grinds if i am not going really slow or stopped, and then i still shift it slow. the tranny fluid was replace last year...is it just the linkage then?

you shoulsnt be shifting to 1st UNLESS youre stopped .
