Flashing gear display

On occasion when I shift into second or third gear with the SMG, the gear indicator light in the center if The gauge cluster blinks off and comes on with the gear I'm going into. The after it shifts it will blink 2 more times. When it does this there is a delay in the shift and it shifts very very hard. Has anyone ever seen what I'm talking about and know what it is?

Oh boy. Sounds like it's time to search the how to threads here. I probably couldn't figure out how to get to the clutch on this thing if I had to. Do you have to drop the bottom of the car?
