    2007 golf mk5 clutch problem, Please help

    Hi all,
    2007 golf mk5 1.9 tdi manual
    Having problem with gear shifting, the problem is; when car engine is cold the gear lever gets very stiff, after it gets warm like 90c it gets bit soft and can change the gears. Iíve been told itís the clutch/dual mass flywheel, but before I take to a mechanic I would like to know if it is the clutch problem or something else is wrong.

    Any help or advice is much appreciated

    thanks

    Sounds like clutch drag but as the system fluid never gets changed it would make sense to get this done and try it.

Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    No the hydraulic clutch fluid which is taken from the brake fluid reservoir, no one ever bothers to do it at brake fluid change time. Changing the actual oil in the box to a top spec type such as https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Red-Line-...item20cdb4421d and Slick 50 gearbox treatment (Halford's sell it) can make a huge difference, it is a formula I have used for decades and had brilliant results with cold recalcitrant gearbox's, especially the old 020 unit which could be a total pig 1st to 2nd in the morning.
