The delay valve in the slave cylinder is actually there to prevent damage to the synchronizers.Hello
Im from Estonia and i too have shift problems. I feel syncros through shifter meaning them not synchronizing leading grind into gear.
The problem is very random and hard to reproduce. Car has kicked gears out for couple times with different gears just before switch.
The problem is in CMC, in other words clutch master cylinder with its delay valve. Same problem has type-r and civic, search youtube /forum/images/HRVForum/smilies/tango_face_wink.png
I made video today demonstrating this problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qp-oQxaMOOk
The car has now 11 000km and first service on its way in about 35 days. I have gone to 3 different dealers in Estonia and no results. They say its normal.
I know how to fix this but here they say they can not put civic part in my HR-V or remove delay valve from CMC.
Im really lost to what to do.

The car is 1.5 M/T petrol
i think i found a solution for this, to make it a bit more acceptable: need to loosen clutch pedal stopper bolt and screw it deeper so there is as little as possible engagement by electrical switch AND need to loosen clutch pedal stopper nut and make as much as possible play to the hydraulic engagement. This way you eliminate rev hang and gears engage betterFirstly it really isn´t in slave cylinder but it is in master and i know that for sure. Secondly, the knob won´t help if hydraulics won´t keep up with mechanics.
my 5 previous Honda cars did not have this delay valve and all them survived my gear shiftings, even the 1992 civic. So why make sporty cars with delay valves in them?! You can´t drive them sporty when it is in there
So i´m not dummy who doesn´t know how shifting works and for more, this HR-V ain´t my first car
I have the same issue with my 2017 LX model (25k miles)! Could you please tell us how and who identified the problem? I'm afraid that the dealer is going to say that it's normal. It can't be. Compared to my 2002 Civic, where I could "fly" through gears with negligible resistance, it's impossible to do so on the HRV. I always hit a "notch" or a "hump" going into a gear, and I have to push through it with concerning force. Also, while demonstrating this to someone, I've noticed that everything seems fine when the car is off and parked in driveway. It's incredibly frustrating while merging fast moving traffic.Problem solved! Problem was faulty clutch master cylinder wich was replaced with warranty
