    Sometime difficult to engage 1st or reverse from standstill

    Very occasionally it is difficult to engage 1st or reverse from a standstill. I usually go back to neutral, lift the clutch and try again and that usually works. It can happen when the engine is cold or hot. The clutch has been bled! It's a 2017 Kombi with manual gearbox. Any ideas?
