Posted 11-01-2013 at 21:53 by aurorakitchens

Hi can any one help me my fiat ducato 2.8 LWB van as got a mind of its own. Some days all is well but now and then you can not get 1st or 2rd gear it will not let you put the gear stick over to the left.
Do i need a new gear box or is my van just having a bad day

    I had similar problems, I had to free up and Grease the selector mechanism on top of the box. Apparently water can run onto this and make it seize. It also wouldn't do any harm to change your gearbox oil,

    gearstick/selector adjustment 244 model

    Hi
    See previous post with attached Word Doc on the procedure for adjusting the gear selector on 244 Ducato models -
    http://www.fiatforum.com/ducato/2276...-selector.html
    That was taken from the original Ducato DTE manual, you could download the eLearn version & see if it has a clearer explaination of adjusting the gearlever mechanism. Will have a look myself in the 02-06 eLearn when I get time.
    As stated in the above post I could not find any info on the adjustment on the gearbox side of the linkages but the problem could be there also.
    Cheers
