On my drive home i had problems changing into 4th gear with the clutch fully compressed. So much so the gears made an awful grinding noise.
Shortly after i had trouble changing into 1st and 2nd gear. Then at an intersection i couldn't change into any gear for 15-20 seconds. Pumped the clutch and then with difficulty could get it into 2nd gear.
Any ideas as to what this could be? Anyone had any similar experiences? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I bought Dot 4 for it and topped up the fluid, not much required for a top up either. Hasnt happened since. No way to see into the tank as its too cloudy. Ive been keeping my eye underneath the car where the gearbox meets the engine for moisture.
I've had the DMF replaced within the past month or two. So someone suggested there may be air in the line. Hopefully they have done a good job. I did hear that they struggled to replace it. Had to saw off a bolt as well i think.
Thanks for the advice ill just wait and see if the issue comes back.
