Stiff Gear Change.....
Posted 14 October 2012 - 05:50 PM
Wondering if anyone can shed some light on this; when selecting first gear my gear stick feels really stiff with a noticeable notchiness....however if the car is moving ever so slightly when I select 1st it goes in a lot easier???
It's a S1 and i have heard some people say this is normal and some say otherwise....
Any info/advice more than welcome!

First thing to check for.
Pop the front inspection panel and look to see if the clutch hose on the hrs is red.
It's a common problem especially when hot, I believe the hose expands and pressure drops so selecting gears becomes hard.
Most upgrade to a braided hose.
I remember my S1 being stuck in pub car parks furiously trying to engage first. Not a happy time.
