I believe a first ==> second grind is one of the symptoms of worn selector
forks. Gearbox strip to fix.

There are _NO_ "minor" clutch problems on RHD quattros. If you have to drop
the transmission, do _everything_ in there. You don't want to have to go back
in for something trivial. Ditto the master cylinder - it's nominally a ten-
hour job, though Martin at BR Motorsport says he can do it in five. Trivial on
a LHD car.
