    Trouble changing gear and vibration

    I have a 1.7CDTI and have trouble changing gear. Occasionally, I go to change gear and cannot. Pressing the clutch a few times sorts it. Also, sometimes when I press the clutch, the pedal feels low and the bite point seems low.

    Was thinking this maybe the thrust bearing until I discoverd its a hydraulic clutch. Checked the fluid level and thats OK.

    Also there is a bit more vibration than I would like around 2000 RPM

    Any ideas before I book it in?

    Yes, the gearstick normally feels a bit notchy and occasionally (on a long run but this could be coincidence) I can't get the stick into gear.

    Well, booked it in and it was a worn clutch and flywheel. The vibration has gone as well now. Cost me £850, probably could have got it cheaper if I shopped around but still less than the £1500 from Vauxhall.
