It usually works fine on the second attempt. But by then the car is travelling at lower speed already.When the fault occurs, can you select a gear if you pump the clutch?
I am experiencing the same problem as everyone, took to main dealer in Plymouth. No clue. I’ve got a 68 plate sandero step way. Will show this thread to the garage as told they’d never heard of it before.We have the same problem with my wife's Sandero stepway. Funnily enough, it's only ever happened when I'm driving. My wife has only been driving for a relatively short time, and hence her style is to try to avoid as many gear changes as possible. When I drive, - we live in a rural area - I tend to make full use of the gears. I have always found that I can free the gear stick after just turning the engine off and back on again in less than a minute.
