peeps,

I have trouble downchanging from 5th to 4th at speed. It seems to have trouble finding the fourth slot on the gait!

Obviously I want to change quickly at speed, could it be that the gearbox oil is knacked or just crap? All other cogs seem to slot in fine. I've tried double de-clutching, makes no difference and is time, and speed, consuming.

Any suggestions or is it just the throw?

E5 by the way ( I presume it is the same gearbox as the 4 and 6).

I used to have a nightmare going from 5th to 4th just like you described. Then I sussed it...with the help of a Brands Hatch racing coach. Without grabing the stick pull it back really gently with your palm and it slots straight in. Really. Nothing worse then hiting a right hander at 135mph and not being able to get into 4th and only finding neutral. Firkin ell. Don't panic Mr Mannering!
