Tjet Gearbox

Was just wondering whether anyone else has ever had any issues with the gearbox in there Tjet, only recently mine started to become notchy, mainly making it difficult to get it into first and getting it out of reverse gear. I took it to Fiat last week and they've acknowledged theres something not right with it, and ive booked it in for 3 days for further investigation.

I guess this could be an issue with the box or the clutch? So anyone else experienced anything?

Cheers
Matt

Im hoping its not serious either, cars done just over 16k since new in November 2007 so by no way is it high mileage

Re: Tjet Gearbox

23k on mine, its popped out of reverse once. Thats about it! Having owned an old mini for 7 years i always slip it into first before i go to reverse anyways as a force of habit. Sometimes feels a bit notchy when cold but i think its just a characteristic of the gearbox? Never had trouble getting it in and out of gear though!

Re: Tjet Gearbox

Just a quick update on this one, took the car in on the 11th, and on the 13th i had a call from the dealer to say the Fiat UK had approved to put a new gearbox in my car........so im guessing there was something fairly drastic wrong with it, i'll give the full analysis when i get the car back hopefully next monday.......meanwhile im stuck with there 1.4 8v courtesy car

Re: Tjet Gearbox

Well apparently when they phoned me up there were just going to replace parts initially but then Fiat UK gave them the go ahead for a whole new gearbox so they're doing that instead Too right i cant wait for my Tjet back the 1.4 8v is slow slow slow

Re: Tjet Gearbox

Reverse makes noise sometimes when I select it.

Although the solution is selecting 1st and then R.

It has to do with the reverse not having synchro.
