    Problems with MK4 Gearbox/Clutch

    Sorry if this is the wrong part of the forum to be posting this. If it is, could a mod please move to the correct one!

    I am experiencing what seems to be a very common problem with ASTRA MK4 Owners. Its the gears sticking and being very clunky when going into gear. Seems to be worse on 1st and 2nd but also is noticiable in all the gears apart from my 5th.

    I had the gearbox oil changed. That helped, but hasnt solved the problem.

    So searching around I see some people think the problem is either clutch drag or linkage needing to be cleaned or regreased.

    I was hoping to get some peoples opinions if they have had this problem and how they fixed it.

    If I do need to replace the clutch, is there a better aftermarket clutch thats lighter or better? Do Astras already have hydraulic clutches?

    I am a noob when it comes to the internals of the ASTRA.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Cheers

    I had a similar problem with second gear. I changed the gearbox oil and the linkage and it has been fine since.
