ok, so, lately, the OH's motor has been playing up a bit
VW golf, 98, 1.8T, manual
reverse gear crunches, and first gear is difficult to select - by 'difficult' I mean it is physically hard to get into gear, once in it is fine, also there is no crunching in forward gears (even when car is stationary)
2nd-5th also difficult to select, but not to the same extent
it does not always behave this way, when cold, it all works quite well.
I was initially thinking the clutch isn't disengaging.
But I've bled it and that made no difference.
As it appears temperature related, I'm going to check oil level in the box, although no reason to suspect its low (no noticable leaks). The box oil has been changed within the last year or so.
Also going to check the gear cable adjustments are ok, although as it works when cold I don't think this is the problem.
Any ideas, STWers?
