    Default Stiff Gear Change

    Hi all, I've just joined and I'm after a bit of advice. I have a 2005 54 plate Vectra 1.9CDTI 150 with a 6 speed manual box. Over the past few months the gear stick has become stiffer and stiffer but only side to side. I've checked the cables they seem fine it. It feels like the selector in the box is this common and what’s the fix.

    Try dropping the fluid and putting 2.4 l of fresh stuff back in

    Having the same issue. Basically down to changing the selector forks now ( having changed the cables and gearbox oil already). This seems to be the way forward after reading through some Alfa forums.

    cables can start to size, may be worth looking at these first.
