Gearbox selection stiffness!

Hi all, Iíve been having a problem recently with my 1.2 06 grande punto. Iím finding it very difficult to select my gears when Iím driving and itís becoming a nuisance. What happens is alot of the time i try and change my gears it becomes very stiff and i have to force it quite hard to change in all the gears, with it becoming much worse each day. Is there a way i can fix this myself?

Re: Gearbox selection stiffness!

I just bought a 1.4 sporting and mines similar sometimes its goes in fairly easy but getting into second is a bit stiff, probably a common problem.

Re: Gearbox selection stiffness!

Came across a couple of videos concerning this on Youtube
This one is Polish, but good subtitles show exactly what the issue is. The selector cable becomes dried out and either needs lubricating or replacement


Watch it at around 4:40 to see how bad and dry the cable becomes
Thanks Lokie, Bernievarian thanked for this post

Thanks sharing that video Mike, I learned something today with the cable adjust and service position :-). The video is worth watching entirely ...

Cheers, Bernie
