Hi there ,good evening to you

Ok is the gear selection ok from cold with the engine switched off

Is it every gear that is hard to select or is it mainly 1st and reverse

Can you select gear ok if you pump the clutch a few times

Can you feel a vibration through the vehicke at idle
through body of the vehicle

Is the vibration at 50 through the steering or vehicle

Sorry for all the questions

Regards on advance
