Gear Selection

Hi,

I've just fitted a replacement gearbox to my MK1 Punto, but now having trouble selecting the correct gears. First seems to high and I have trouble pulling away, 3rd seems lower than it is.

The gearstick feels very loose with loads of play.

Now, I had to undo the lever on the actual gearbox as I'd made a mess of removing the rod on the replacement and I think I've upset where the lever should be.

Would appreciate some help from anyone who has any experience of setting up the selection linkages.

Re: Gear Selection

i believe that is the only way to do it, is all i have ever done. Helps to have a friend to help so one can sit in car while the other makes slight adjustment, then the other can test and so on.

Re: Gear Selection

Thanks for the advice guys sounds like it will be a right pain. Just had another look seems like the lever at the gearbox needs to be keyed onto the stud of the fork selector shaft. Trouble is each time I try to do this the shaft drops
