Notchy gearbox changing down only
Following a complete transmission failure resulting in a tow in, I've just had a new clutch and DMF fitted to my 2006 RAV4 diesel 4WD.
Since then, changing down on engine overrun from any gear is really notchy in that the clutch seems to be barely disengaging. This happens only on engine overrun, e.g. on slowing into a roundabout or before taking a turning.
A blip on the throttle after depressing the clutch and before the downshift negates the fault however.
Engaging gear from neutral is fine, as is changing up. The clutch bite point is about an inch off the floor.
The independent repairer who did the job is saying it's not a problem with his work or the new parts, so I'm heading for a bit of a disagreement with him as the repair is warranted for three months.
Anybody got any ideas as to the nature of the fault please? so I can lean on the guy with a bit more technical reasoning.
