    Question Need A Bit Of Advice!

    Hi all, my mate is looking to get a mk5 1.9cdti astra. We went and had a look a one last nite and its in excellent condition. 56 plate, FSH, 47000 miles, valeted weekly etc only thing that concerns us is that when your in 1st gear ready to pull away the gearstick pops back about half n inch when you reach the biting point with the clutch. It doesn't jump out of gear it just comes back a little. It doesn't do it in any of other gears. Is this normal? Thanks in advance.

    Dosent sound good to me. Id personally walk away.

    Though wait for more opinions from members with the mk5 1.9's

    Is it a 8v (120) or 16v (150)?

    The 150 have been know to have gearbox failures so could be an early warning...
