Gearbox makes a bang-sound and car jerks forward. This only happens on first gear.

I've had this problem for 2 months now. I'm currently switching to winter mode so that Car starts with the 3d gear

Following the advice on this forum - I did a gearbox reset but problem remains.

What could be the problem?
I know that the gearbox is sealed for life on this model - but should I take it to Peugeot and ask that they change the oil on my car ?

"gearbox is sealed for..." 1st owner of the car who will have car maybe 3 years and make 100.000 km. Their experience with the car will usually be OK and will buy new Peugeot again. The rest of us who will buy second hand cars need to play it safe and maintain "sealed for life parts"
I have changed (refreshed) oil in my car 2 times. First time at the official Peugeot dealer and it was not that expensive at round 150€ for work and 6 liters of oil.

How many kilometres does car have and what car do you have?

Hm, I was asked 100€ for 2 liters of oil (that's how it's packed), so it was pretty expensive for me, maybe because it's newer type of gearbox. So I just bought it in the local store for 12€ a liter.

BTW, how did you reset the gearbox?

If it is 25.000 miles then your oil should be OK
If it is 250.000 km, then you should replace replace the oil, but I think it will not help.
You should find good gearbox specialist and have valve block refurbished.
