Hi,<p>Does anybody notice that when the car is cold (overnight) that changing from 1st to 2nd gear is a bit rough? also has anyone mistakenly put the car in reverse rather than 1st gear?<p>Re: 1st to 2nd being rough<p><A HREF="http://www.alldata.com/tsb/Volvo/1130832000000_1135324800000_TNN43-47/471.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.alldata.com/tsb/Vol....html</A><p>But it includes removal of the Gear Box !!!! <p>Has anyone had this done? I don't really fancy my dealer removing and reinstalling the gear box !<p>

Re: Rough Gear Change 6 Speed 2.0D (MarkE)

I dunno about that, I'm starting to have trouble getting into mine! Never had a problem before with it being selected accidentally. I'm also wondering whether the reverse selection difficulties are related to my drivetrain vibrations..... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

the vibrations have a fix.<p>my gear selector was vibrating alot when in neutral. They had to perform a modification on the engine bay ( they "joined" the 2 cables from the gear selector toghether and lubrificated under the gear selector).<p>The car is now better than ever <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

My old 2.0D had the rough shifting but never got it fixed, my T5 has it now thinking about it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I remember once being at a right turn in the 2.0D, hot day, music turned up, I knocked into neutral as it was a big queue, somebody flashed their lights to let me through (to my surprise). I rushed the car into gear and jammed the gas, only to start going backwards!! The look on the womans face behind me was priceless <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> .<p>Other than that I was ok with it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> The T5 has the reverse in a better place <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

Maybe little bit, but to be honest - NO.<p>Also my box is the one with push down and shift reverse.<p>No other problems with the car. In 2 months will have first maintenance, and will see how is the rest of it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

However I have found this has happened more since the car is getting more miles on it. Now on 39000, so could be as things loosen up. <p>If this is the case, not looking forward to the end of my 4 year lease and 120,000 miles <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">
