Re: ZF5 3rd gear grind problem
I would think its probably a synchro. I had an issue with mine where I couldn't downshift into second. I could go from 1st to 2nd with no issues though. I ended up breaking my shiftfork so i put new synchros in and now its fine. There's these little grooves on the inside of each synchro so that could be worn flat like some of mine were.
