It is very difficult to engage the first gear of my skoda fabia

It is a petrol car, 1.4L ENGINE. When the clutch is pressed down to the floor revese gear will engage without making noise or difficulty.When the car come to a stop after running, engaging first gear is not difficult.it happens occassionally at cold starts and sometimes when in roundabouts.local skoda dealer says the clutch is worn(and not worn out)and recommended a gear oil change. The car has run 72000 miles

Exchange the transmission fluid with a synthetic lube for easier engagement. Shift to second first before shifting to first helps as well.

SOURCE: New clutch cable made gear change much worse.

Hi,

Had a recent similar problem. Fortunately, my replacement cable is adjustable. As the new cable stretched, I had to take a crowbar to the the throwout lever next to the battery and lever it back while pulling off the cable (towards the battery). I then lifted the fuse box (look out for the 10mm plastic nut that holds it in on the side by the driver's side fender) on the drivers side right in front of the windshield to reach down and pull the cable up enough to reach the adjustor. When it is high enough, release the locknut and turn the adjusting nut upwards about 4 turns (both nuts on my cable were 17mm and a "stubby" is handy but not necessary. Grab the end by the battery and, making sure it is seated on the groove on the transmission, pry the lever again with the crowbar and reseat tg
he cable end in the lever. I have had to readjust the cable twice more before it settled in a comfortableplace, but once you get the hang of it, it only takes about 10 minutes.

Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: just changed the battery on my skoda fabia vrs

The easiest way to reset the computer coding system is to unhook your battery and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. If the code comes back on after starting your car then whatever is causing the code is still happening.

Beware that you will most likely need to know the code to unlock your radio if it has the theft protection built in where if power is unhooked from the radio the radio is locked until you follow the procedure outlined in your owners manual with a code to get it back working. If you don't have the code, your Volkswagen dealer can help you out as well.

SOURCE: Skoda fabia 1.4 MPI fitted new clutch, pressure

bleed out the clutch fluid, to the slave cylinder, it uses the same fluid as in the brake system and takes it from the brake fluid resevour, so dont let it drain low- keep toping it up as you bleed the clutch line, if problem still persists, you must be sure you put the clutch friction plate in the right way.

Skoda Fabia. Will not go into 3rd gear & also other gears grinding when engaging


First check the clutch - it might be unadjusted so it doesn't disconnects totally. If the clutch is OK then the problem is in the gearbox: the locking system of the shifting forks is defective. The gearbox must be dismantled and the forks and their mechanism inspected and repaired - a job for a shop.

Fiat Palio-1.2 ELX (Petrol) clutch ''not-working''


Even I had this problem. After sometime engaging gear was difficult. There are two reasons. First, it could be leakage of servo fuel/brake fluid from the master cylinder on the clutch side or it could be due to the wear of the pressure plate.
