    I have had this problem in me 2000 2.0 SRi for ages :shock:. Usually happens when the car is started from cold, the gear clunks into place rather than a springy smooth change. Once I cannot even change to second, the gear stick just wont go into place??

    worn gear linkages maybe? If the gear change seems unsure, or if it physically 'pops' out of gear, then start with the linkages.

    See this thread

    I've taken to vauxhall many times, feel kinda stupid keep going back so i'm just learning to live with it or maybe sell it... Still goes, and seems it happens to quite a few Astra's.

    It does seem really odd hat it has happened to so many astras, surely this is a build issue?
