Thank you for the reply.
No I have not found an answer and would greatly appreciate a response from an expert.
No worries on the wait. I'm offshore for a couple of weeks.
I've not been back in touch with them yet. Kinda at the end of my tether with them. Don't get me wrong they have been more than helpful in trying to resolve, I just can't believe the problems have returned. I had to specifically wait till the vehicle was cold and take it up for the manager to test drive last time as the service manager said there was nothing wrong with it, but the other manager agreed it had a nasty judder on take off (which wasn't there till they changed the 5th gear synchro) They claim to have replaced the clutch and flywheel, which was fine for a couple of hundred miles and now the judder has re appeared and the crunching going into second has also re appeared. As I said on this earlier this only happens randomly at various speeds.....slow take off....quick take off from roundabout.
Shame really as the van is a 1 owner with only 38,000 on it. This is probably my last throw of the dice with it and I'll probably look to trade it if I can't resolve.
Probably a hint of desperation creeping in, hence posting on here looking for some ammo before the last throw with MB
