Hi, how often do I need to change oil in gearbox of the T5 I own and I find a vibration when pulling away through 1st to 3rd gears. Any concerns need to be mindful of?

Regards
Shade

Got a gear box specialist in and its the flywheel, clutch and pressure plate that is going. Common problem on these vehicles.

Beside slipping, what are the tell tale signs that a clutch is going. My last two manual transmission car clutches failed suddenly. My '90 Daytona, which slipped from day one, failed on such a way that the clutch was clutch was always engaged. The day it failed, I had just picked up a Centerforce clutch kit. Fortunately it was on a parking lot. I managed to drive it 40 miles to home by starting it in 1st and playing the synchronizers to up-shift and down-shift.

The other was my '94 Integra which failed when one of the springs let loose and made a mess of everything. I wasn't even driving hard. Just going from 4th to 5th on I95 in morning rush hour. It is a bad feeling driving on the highway in a center lane, suddenly you have no drive and have to fight your way over to the shoulder.

I just turned 140K miles on my V50 and I have no idea how the car was driven for 95K miles of that. It isn't slipping but I get throw-out bearing noise when cold and a light knocking noise that follows engine speed when I engage the clutch.

I'm no specialist but those arenolder model cars doesn't have a dual.mass clutch system like the one in my 2006 Volvo t5. The vibration from the front wheels is felt while pulling away through 1st to 3rd gears and it distinctly originates from the front...at first I thought is was my control arms but upon inspection and after a test drive by a gearbox specialist he immediately could tell what is going to eventually happen if I dont fix the problem within the next 4000km...so on essence the whole clutch kit must be replaced. Hope this helps.
