1st and 2nd gear shudder!!

Question

When pulling away in 1st gear and changing to 2nd the car shudders, forcing me to dip the clutch again. Any advice on why this may be happening would be grateful. Ive been told to have the CDV (clutch delay valve) removed but unsure this would rectify the problem.

The CDV can cause issues, but has is caused this same issue since you bought the car ? If not, then there could be something else at play.... Such as the guibo.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah the shuddering started sporadically and is now all the time, also when going over cobbles/speed ramps, there feels a small amount of give coming through the steering

I think your best bet is to get it into the air and have a look underneath - I think it's about the only way to know for sure.
