Re: Manual Troubles

If its just been rebuilt might as well go back and force them to fix the problem they created don't think you would be able to fix it yourself :/

Re: Manual Troubles

Could Just be the Clutch cable. My XE did the same thing after we changed the box, I just had to tighten the cable. If that aint it, take it back!

Aren't diagonal changes a nono? I could do 1st-2nd and 3rd-4th flat changes, but not 2nd-3rd or 4th-5th. This was in an XE btw

Re: Manual Troubles

In my T5 I can do flat changes in any gear.. not that I do them... poor clutch.

I find that keeping the revs up betwen quick gear changes(for racing) works best, say 500rpm above where the next gear will come in. Gear mesh seems better, and gives the car a bit of a jump with minimal wheelspin.
