Only had 1st and 2nd gear this morning. There is a hook on the back of the battery tray which should hold a coolant pipe in place, must have missed that the hook jammed against one of the selectors :doh:

The judder is really getting me down, done about 180km now since changing the clutch.  :sad1:

Jacked it up earlier and checked the mounts the lower mount is rock solid struggle to get any movement.

But there is a tiny bit if movement on the gearbox mount with not much pressure. I've marked where the movement is in the pic below could this be causing the judder?? It only moves a tiny bit.

Ordered a new engine mount if that does not fix the judder will move on to the dog bone mount. If that fails i think i will scrap her.

The judder is gone. Changing the mount was a pita not helped by buying the cheapest mount i could find.

It didn't fit so i took the grinder to it.
