No the shaking is still the same with the clutch being operated, clutch works fine all gears are selected without problem

Hi..there..sorry for the delay..

To me going by description id say the first places/areas to check would be the engine/transmission mounts..if one of them has failed rubber parts of the mount has split this can cause alot of vibration to be felt within the car/or throuhg the gearstick..so that certainly would be one area to inspect..next would be for possible dmf problems..but at this stage id say as above would be first things to be checked...
