Hello. I recently bought an old Nissan Micra as a first car. It drives
really well apart from little niggle when I change from 4th into 3rd
it is really sticky and difficult to get back into 3rd.
Changing up is always unproblematic however the issue only ever
happens when changing down from 4th to 3rd.
Any help or sugggestions much appreciated.

gear on down shifts.
If it doesn't crunch, but movement is difficult, it might be a gear
