How to Change Down Gears
Changing down gears is when you’re in a high gear such as 5th and want to change down to 4th, 3rd, 2nd etc. You can change down gears using selective gear changing, or ‘block gear changing’ as it’s also known, but first you need to practice sequential gear changing, in other words, changing down gears in order.
Just as with the changing up gears tutorial, we’ll be using the palming method for making down gear changes. Practice changing down gears in a car with the engine switched off. Ensure the car is secured with the parking brake and that the clutch pedal is fully depressed.
