Notchy gearbox, Punto SX 1.1 1996

Hi all,

I've heard it's a common problem in Puntos, but anyone got tips on how to treat a notchy gearbox.. 1st to 2nd is quite 'crunchy' and there's a small vibration when I change down.

Thanks

Sounds like your clutch slave cylinder is on the way out. The gearbox should be smooth.

Now picture the Golf in the snow outside a cafe at a ski resort in St Anton, Austria, and it see how it comes into its own..

Check the oil level in the gearbox.
