B7 A4 - slight gearbox shudder when stopping?
« on: May 19, 2018, 09:16:18 am »
Hey guys. A B7 A4 has popped up that Iím looking to buy. In the final stages of coming to a stop (10-0kmph) there is a slight shudder from the transmission as if itís slow to shift to neutral and causing the engine to strain. Itís subtle, hard to notice it every time.

I googled it and seemed to find posts suggesting that it was somewhat normal and not to worry about it.

Anyone here have any thoughts on it? The car has done 110,000km. No service history in terms of any servicing of the transmission unfortunately.
