Problems with 1st gear ?

I've found that sometimes when I've went to first gear it seems like it's not connecting properly. End up having to fully release the clutch then putting it down again and keep putting it in 1st a few times till it connects. 2 people drive the car and both have noticed this problem, any idea's what it could be ? or anyone had this issue ? Going to take it to dealership later this week and get them to check the gearbox

Re: Problems with 1st gear ?

There are revived syncros out there for the ape gear box for 1st & 2nd gear as some cars have had problems.

Don't not take no for an answer, they may need to see the car do it.

But get it sorted soon.
