Thread: Clutch / Gearbox

  1. Clutch / Gearbox

    Morning folks,

    Just posting to see if anyone out there has has any issues with as stated the clutch and gearbox.. mine is the 1.4TDi AMF recently it's been a nightmare to get into gear.. reverse, 1st, sometimes 2nd, 3rd and 4th OK, 5th a nightmare again. Clutch fully engaged when changing. I've taken it to my mechanic and he thinks changing the clutch to start with but cant rule out a bad gearbox either just wanted to see if you guys had any thoughts.

    Thanks for reading.

    Have you tried resetting the gearbox linkages?

    This was the text I got from my mechanic yesterday explaining everything he has done so far...

    " I have carried out a bleeding of the clutch hydraulics.

    And I have carried out the correct adjustment to the cables.

    My feelings on the clutch is that the pedal is very low anyways Iím assuming the clutch is knackered and not clearing enough to get a smooth gear change.

    Gearbox out job, clutch kit and slave replacement would be a good start.

    Donít advise driving it like this at the moment as itís crunching gears.

    We canít rule out a knackered gearbox but with the clutch biting point so low we need to try that.

    Whatís your thoughts. "

    I can't say I have read on this forum of any knackered gearbox. What I have read and experienced myself is the bearing in gearbox selector tower and the 3rd gear crunch caused by worn syncro. You can do a quick search on here for these problems to see if the same symptoms are prevalent. Sorry I can't be of more help.

  5. Got two question relating to my issue... if someone could let me know that would be great.

    *1.4TDi AMF*

    1, Does my A2 have a crankshaft sensor?

    2, Does it have a dual mass flywheel?

    Cheers folks.

    It has a crankshaft AND a camshaft sensor.

    It does NOT have a Dual Mass Flywheel.

    The only A2 that uses a DMF is the TDI 90.
