Mazda 3 2014 Sport Nav - Clutch Issue - Mazda3Man

Evening all,

Letting out the clutch when in 1st and changing to 2nd gear rarely results in a smooth uptake of drive (car jerks backwards and forwards) and I find that I really have to concentrate to get anywhere near a decent shift; other gear changes are fine. I am an experienced driver and haven't had this with other cars that I have had, so don't think the issue is my driving style!

Anybody else have this issue? Is the clutch worn? Or is there another issue that could explain this?

Many Thanks.

It is probably the pressure plate or the drive plate that are not running true. had it on one car back in the 70's.
