Please can anyone help!!?? My gears keep sticking mainly in 1st and 2nd, If
i try and drop to 2nd it jams in neutral then if I've stopped at a junction
or roundabout I can't get it into 1st to move off again. It doesn't happen
all the time it's happens maybe 3 out of 5 drives. I have to stop the car
put on my hazards,take foot off the clutch and just wait till it goes in
again.Have just had a full service and the gearbox oil has been changed
and it still sticks.Have had car for nearly a year with 66,000 miles on
clock and it's only been happening for about a month.Please any
Had this on our Punto HGT.
Put the gear lever in neutral. Now move the gear lever to each of the gate
positions 1, 3, 5 and R (but don't select the gear, i.e. push forwards or
backwords). Now quickly release the gear lever. It should rapidly spring
back to the 2/3 neutral rest position.
The gear selection is cable driven by two cable. One does the
forward/backwars the other the lateral. This lateral cable connects to an
arm/actuator assembly on top of the gearbox. This is just a simple steel
shaft in an alloy housing and in siezes up. The are cheap to buy and easy
When I got my new one I dismantelled it and re-assembled it with MRM/molly
grease on the shaft before refitting.
