Gear grinding

Post by ollieg97 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 10:12 am

Morning first time post so please be nice! :lol:

my astra K grinds from gear 1 to gear 2 - admittedly I have a very heavy right foot... is anyone else seeing this?

also after a bad grind the gearbox sticks and I cant get it out of gear If I have to stop soon after it grinds...

hope that makes sense

Hello and welcome to the forum!

This doesn't sound right at all and is certainly nothing I've experienced on my particualr car, although it's a different model.

Have you had your Astra from new and how many miles / kilometres have you covered? Presumably it's still under warranty?
