Hi! My gear shifter shakes, almost every time when I put it into the 2nd. It doesn't shake if any other gear is engaged. Only in second, it really annoys me, I'm even afraid of losing my transmission!If any of you find this problem familiar,or if anyone has ever experienced this shaking (in just one gear),please tell me what's the matter,so I can get it fixed!It's a manual 5-spd transmission(A4 1.8)
IS it when you are coming off the clutch? Mine sometimes does this thing where it seems to pop and its done it since I have had the car. Cant figure out why. I have to come off the clutch very slowly to make this go away and its kinda annoying makes driving hard, well, a bit hard.
Also though, 1st to 2nd shift is the biggest gear ratio difference I believe so its tough to execute correctly. Not saying you arent, but its entirely possible you arent handling it properly (like I am).
it shakes when the clutch is released already, and it doesn't matter,it does that if I'm accelerating or braking or just putting my foot of the gas pedal. The gear lever shakes like I do when it's 20 below zero So I don't believe it has anything to do with the clutch or releasing the clutch. I hope it's nothing serious.
My 5-spd manual gear shifter shakes too. But for me it is only when the 4th gear is engaged. All other gears works fine, and it is not happening every time I engage the 4th gear. It seems like it depends on how I shift to the 4th gear.
I belive (and hope) that it is only that the gear linkage need an adjustment.
