Hi all,

While playing around with the C/S switch, when stuck in a traffic jam and bored, I noticed that in D I could feel no difference selecting C or S, but in N I got a faint "tug" on the car when I selected S. In P I got a fairly faint, but definite, "clonk". In neither position could I feel anything selecting C. Just going into S.

Anyone know what's moving around and if its normal? Hopefully it is, and I just never noticed before.

TIA

Keith

With the 7 speed box you will feel a little jolt when you select S from C or the other way around and it is normal, you are locking out first gear when going to C
