French term or phrase: système "antilacher" sur le baladeur
From a vehicle fault-finding manual. The whole sentence is 'Non conformité ou absence du système "antilacher" sur le baladeur 3/4 (la non conformité n'est pas mesurable en APV). Can anyone suggest a translation of the whole sentence, as I'm not sure what APV is? The sentence refers to a problem with 3rd and 4th gears on manual gearboxes.

APV is "après-vente". In this context, it means that the nonconformity cannot be measured by the garage/dealer when the customer takes the car in.
