Having A Hard Time Putting My 996Tt In First Gear


Recommended Posts

I am having a hard time periodically putting my car in first gear. It has a EVO short shifter which was installed by old owner. Clutch is good and working with no slippage. This happens at complete stops and normally i have to "double clutch" and force it in gear. Dosent happen all the time and if I put in first at rolling stop it has no issue. Anyone have a suggestion on what is going on? thanks.

I had the same problem when I first bought mine... hard to get into first at a stop, sometimes I thought it was in first and then I'd let off the clutch to go and it would pop out and I'd be clammering to get a gear before the honks started. My first fix was to swap over to the 997 GT3 shift mechanism, and when I went to install it found out that the previous owner had installed a aftermarket short shift mechanism. Ahhh Haa! So I installed the new 997 GT3 mechanism and it fixed about 95% of the problem. Every once in a blue moon when I come to a stop it will be a little harder to put into first but its a rare occaison and it justs harder to push it in, not the false first I used to get.
