So my 08 2.5 rabbit has a massive problem shifting into 2nd gear. There is no problem getting the shifter into position for second but once the clutch is let out the gear will either grind and spit the gear out or thump and let the gear in. I have adjusted the shift linkage already to see if that was the main issue, but while there is some improvement it quickly returns to its original problematic state. Any one have any idea on what might be the cause or any plan to remedy the solution on my own? Car has about 70k on it with original clutch and no mechanical changes to the vehicle. Any advice on this would be appreciated
