3rd gear clunk

Morning all

GTV TS (99) over the past few days has started clunking when I engage 3rd gear. It only does this once, maybe twice from first start of the day. Possibly because it has been a little colder over the past few days??? No problem with 3rd actually engaging but as I say, clunks on engagement. Any ideas and more importantly anything to worry about? As always, thanks for any input.

Re: 3rd gear clunk

MMMM, don't sound healthy. If it gets worse over the next few thousand miles I would say it's the syncromesh or selector lever had it.

You should check the gear box oil level first to make sure you don't have too little or to much in. With the colder weather coming in you could try and replace the oil with a synthetic one or try a slightly thinner one than specified and see if this helps.
