    Question Gear stick

    Hey guys,

    got a 52 plate vectra, the bug bear i have with it is every now and then when i go to put it in 5th gear it fells like somthing a trapped/blocking it. It will go into 5th gear its when you shake the gear stick side to side in nuturel, when u pull it to the right toward 5th gear it seem a bit tight and it makes a clicking sound, After a few shakes it goes away. But it keep coming back every so often

    (If you can make sence of what im trying to say) Has any one else had or got this prob.

    I dont think its the gears itself as it goes in and out of gears fine.

    i think it may be somthing to do with the gear stick/functions it self.

    Any help would be great.

    I have had the gaiter off and cant see any thing obvious..

    what you mean by needing set mate?

    needing a set of linkages?

    not sure on the vectra but earlier vauxhalls gave similar problems if worn or not set correctly
