    Yes I had some grinding into 2nd a few times. I got a short shifter but that didn't make any difference. I'm not very good with the mechanical work unless it's something very simple. I'd rather get someone who knows how to do it, to make the adjustment but unfortunately Holden didn't want to do anything.

    In that case best to book your car in just with that problem, that way it's more likely that a senior mechanic will have a look at your car. Might be a good idea to put the standard shifter back on first.

    Not to sound all negative but have being down this path with holden on my astra select and they don't want to know. They arnt paid to fault find. I'm loosing coolant somewhere as I have to refill bottle every wk and they took it In and supposedly did a pressure test and said we couldn't find a leak so there isn't a problem.....yeah but it's using coolant so there is...continue to monitor it was there solution!!!!!!

    Ur best bet like I have and am doing is getting a REAL mechanic to look at it, find the problem and then take to holden along with the bill for the mechanics time. The warranty is bit of a 💩. Being opel holden are only even more unwilling to look at them unfortunately

    Found stress fractures in my coolant reservoir and also found it was leaking from the cap. Holden's were more than happy to fault find after that and replace the bottle - all covered under warranty.
    I suggest you try a different dealer.
