I have a 2006 golf 1.6 fsi petrol
I just bought a car , test drive was good ( my friend test drove it for me and we only got up to high speed once , where he changed as he would up/right/up ) but on the way home putting it into 5th gear was not the smoothest .
the best way to explain this is like this .
when driving and changing gears from say 4th to 5th gear , I don’t push the gear stick up then right then up , I try and just go straight diagonal ( if that makes sense )
in all other gears it works fine and smooth changing gears diagonally ( 2nd to 3rd - 1st to 2nd - 5th to 4th ) , but from 4th to 5th it wont go in . I have to push from 4th up/right/then up , it wont go in in a diagonal movement .
when the car is not moving it goes in fine .
what might be the problem ?
many thanks for reading
