    Default stiff gears

    Hey guys
    I have recently noticed the gears have become a little stiff in the vectra (1.9 CDTI manual). Just seems to happen when going from first to second. The problem seems to be getting much worse lately, maybe the colder weather? Is there a DIY fix for this or do I just put up and shut up?

    How much mileage has the car got on it?

    Might be worth doing a gearbox oil change.

    Not sure if the 1.9's gearbox oil is easy to change or not there may be a how to, but if not I'm sure someone with more knowledge of the 1.9's than me (I know my 2.0T inside out and the 2.2 that I had for a while but no specifics about the diesels sorry) will come along soon. But at that mileage if it's getting stiff and notchy I'd definitely be changing the gearbox oil.

    There's a bit of confusion in that How2 about how much oil goes back in, be sure to put 2.2-2.4 litres in, not 3.2
