    yes, usually hapens when shifting from a stand stillit's strange , it will drive great for a short distance, then when shifting it judders and the Malfunction light starts blinking,  The  light stays on.

    what  is a thurst bearing?  Is this something that would have been replaced when the clutch/flywheel was replaced?

    you need to take it back to the garage and get the thurst bearing seen to, it sounds like the bearing is not moving correctly. Does it do it when setting off from stand still when releasing the clutch?

  • alex murrell Jan 17, 2009

    it comes with the clutch kit. the thurst bearing releases the clutch plate from the fly wheel.

First and second gear roughwhen starting

If by rough you mean juddering when moving off, then it is a clutch and possibly flywheel problem. The gearbox will have to come out and the components checked and replaced as necessary.

If you mean it is a rasping sound then its more than likely a gearbox problem.

Stick in 1st gear have to pull it hard all others are fine

There two possibility of breakdown in that part, one is the cable might have loosen up and needs some adjustment in the shifting stick gear base. A local mechanic can adjust it and check why it become loose.
The second is, synchronizer gear failure. That part is inside the transmission, it is made of brass, and the gear teeth might have worn out. To check it, needs to pull down the whole transmission and opening it to check the gears. Replacing that gear is a must!
That gear broke down when somebody forcefully shifting the gear in first without the clutch assistant.
Forcing your car to start at 2nd gear from stop will wear down your clutch assembly, so be very carefull don't over rev the engine.
Hope that helps you.
Thanks for using FixYa!

2000 A4: notchy gear change when the engine is hot

Check the gearbox oil - has this been changed (with the wrong grade) just before the problem started ? May also be too little oil, from a small leak - which will get very thin when then inevitably overheating. Best to change the gearbox oil, note if lots of sludge or debris comes out (or is attached to the drain plug). If oil is the problem, total siezure may be just down the road.

the transmission needs to be taken apart and have the second gear synchro replaced. i would start with just have BG sychro shift put in at a local shop that sells BG. that will help with the problem.
