Joel, I tried to select "year" 2002 but did not find that year listed in the drop down menu. I recently purcahsed this 2002 996 C4 Cab with a CPO warranty and ocassionaly find when trying to engage 2nd gear a grinding sound and the need to try once again to shift into 2nd gear. When i encounter this "grinding" I do not attempt to complete the gear change but try again. As you mention in other responses I do not try to rush shifts. I had the Dealer change the transmission fluid and check it out. They re-adjusted the cables and found no evidence of metal in the old transmission fluid. The incidence of grinding when trying to engage 2nd gear has diminished but not gone away. At present the incidences are infrequent; twice since it was seen at the Dealer. How serious do you consider this "grinding" to be?
