I just had an FVD brombacher Short Shifter installed on my '03 C4S, 99,000 KM.

when i slot the shifter into 1st, 3rd or 5th, i get this metal clunking sound that's coming from under the stick.

that sound doesn't happen when i slot the shifter downwards into 2nd, 4th or 6th gear.

is this normal for a short shifter? the guy at the workshop said it's supposed to sound more mechanical but i'm not too sure about that...

anyone faced something like this before?

Not knowing which of their SSK kits was installed (as I see they have a number) will limit our suggestions to remedy as only guesses . . .

Aside from either: obviously it wasn't installed correctly and/or it is the wrong one for your C4S . . let's assume it's a compatible one. So, based on your comment re: trouble shifting to 1, 3 , 5 (I presume R too), and now 1 not staying... the issue is likely b/c they didn't align shift cables properly during install or didn't mark the existing location accurately when taking out old or didn't adjust for addition of FVD (depending on which SSK installed). On the OEM shifter and short shift kits, there is an alignment tool to aid in making sure both shift cable are aligned correctly.

Let us know which particular FVD SSK you installed and we can help more from there.


PS - w/ most SSK, you need to remove the 'appendix' (a green plate) on the bottom of the shifter housing in order to make it function correctly - at least was the case in the Boxsters. Just another thought...
