    dont tell me its a gearbox failure!!!!!

    something's happening to my gearbox.

    dunno if its normal, tho i thought modern gearboxes dont do this....

    its esp apparent when I shift into 3rd.
    If I push the gear lever to the front-most position (as u do when u upshift from 2nd-3rd), as soon as I get back on the accelerator, the gear lever "springs" back about 1cm (backwards).

    and if I try to push the lever back to the front-most position again, it springs back asa I get on the gas.

    it also happens a bit on 4th, not so much with 1st/2nd gear.

    WTF???
    I hv been very gentle on the g/box, always heeltoe on downshifts. hardly engage into gear too quickly or slipp clutch on hill starts..

    whats happening???
    (I hv a 5-sp 2.7L btw) i think its not a problem with 6-sp cos I test drove one b4 with no probs.

    Re: dont tell me its a gearbox failure!!!!!

    my 986 does it - put it down to uptake in the transmission. When i ease off it springs forward too.

    Re: dont tell me its a gearbox failure!!!!!

    Whatever it is, you know it's going back to the dealer...

    Please let us know what they tell you, I'm curious.

    common problem on 9x6s apparently.

    they may be able to fix it by adjusting the cables in the shift tunnel, if that doesnt do it, its usually the tranny and gets replaced under warranty.

    Re: dont tell me its a gearbox failure!!!!!

    Mine does this on rare occasions, but in first gear.
    If I dont put it firmly into first at full stop, it sometimes pops back in neutral when I speed up.
    Sounds like the same problem.
    May be the syncromesh or the plastic-thingy right under the leatherbag (surrouning the gear lever).

    Go to the dealer for sure.

    Re: dont tell me its a gearbox failure!!!!!

    mine DOESNT pop back into neutral tho.

    it springs back ~1cm backwards from third but stays in gear.
    it doesnt vibrate or anything under accel.

    cos some cars if u rev the car in first, the gear rattles like crazy.

    mine just spring back a little bit. never actually popped into neutral to outta gear.

    dunno what the hell is happening......

    Is it a problem then? I mean - if it only moves 1 cm?

    Re: dont tell me its a gearbox failure!!!!!

    If its under warranty then get them to check it - at least if it fails aferwards you have soem recompense.

    If its out of warranty i wouldn't worry about it.
