    Hi All,

    I own a 2.4 Type-S, at present it's very difficult to select gears while the engine is running & driving. I took it to the garage (independent) on Tuesday to have them do a clutch fluid bleed.

    When I picked it up they said that the fluid had bits of crap in it? & had replenished it.

    It was slightly better but still no were near like it should be!

    It had the clutch replaced about 3 months ago (Genuine clutch)

    Any ideas before I take it back?

    Try gearbox fluid change and see if that helps.
    When I changed gearbox fluid on my car gear changes were really smooth.

    Hi Zoran,

    it's got 117,000 miles on the clock, it's actually my wife's car! She said it gradually came (gear chance hard) and just got worse, it did however go slightly better with the fluid change/bleed, but still not good.
    Did you have the same/similar issues?
