Got a problem on the fn2. When on vtec you can't change to the next gear. The synchros won't let you. Driving the car normally everything gear change is smooth and slick .. car is an 08 model type R. Is this a common fault ? Can it be fixed ?

Did you get anywhere with this?

First thing I'd be doing is changing the clutch - these cars are difficult to change gear in VTEC if its on its way out. The FN2's do apparently have an issue with syncros (2nd to 3rd gear) which can be repaired at cost. Start cheap and work your way up - clutch or at the very least transmission fluid change with MTF3

Changed my clutch today with new mtf3 and clutch fluid and it's like a new car, everything silky smooth. Proper happy bunny now, give it a go!
