    Question astra sport gears

    '99 Astra Sport 1.8 (x18xe1). 1st and 2nd in my gearbox is a bit tough to get sometimes. I think it's when i'm breaking (anything to do with weight shifting?) but when i'm static it's not too bad. anybody had experience of this, or any mechanicaly minded people out there got any ideas?

    cheers (i dread the answer!)

    Sometimes get this also get some problems going into 2nd from 1st the odd time, usually when im giving it a bit of right foot which is annoying.

    same in mine, gotta be built like arnie to get it in 1st (never a good idea to force it in though). Usually gets alot easier after its warmed up, tried rev matching it from 3rd to 2nd usually helps.

    i have a feeling my clutch is begining to go, notchy gears is often a sign of this as it went in my corsa
