Elo, wondering if anyone can tell me whats happened!
Driving my 07 astra 1.6t sri sporthatch through a macdonalds drive through on tuesday morning, stopped with foot on clutch in 1st at the window, all of a sudden a loud bang and 1st jumped out of gear. Went back in fine and drove off fine so didnt think much more of it, maybe something got stuck but was alright now i thought!
On my way home from work tuesday 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th are all fine but 3rd keeps jumping out of gear with a clunk and then sitting like grinding as if i havnt put it in gear properly. And yesterday and today it does it everytime I put it into 3rd and accelerate, even very slowly. If i hold it very frimly it will stay in gear otherwise it jumps out and grinds.
Cars only done 11k and has been drivin relatively nicely (for at least the last 4k since I have had it for sure). Its booked in tomorrow morning for Vauxhall to sort it out but just wondering if anyone can tell me what has happened and if it is a common fault or I have been doing something wrong or anything as im curious!
Also is there a chance the warranty wont cover it? I havnt done anything out of the ordinary but was told gearboxes are a bit dodgy when it comes to warranty work, and VX trying to get out of everything at the moment wont help!
Cheers for any info in advance
