    Default Notchy Gearchange

    Hi guys, I know there have been several threads about this subject before and indeed I have been to the dealers at least 3 times with the same complaint. My 05 2.2 Sri has a notchy gearchange from 1st to 2nd and sometimes from 2nd to 3rd.
    Dealers adjusted linkage, lubed cables and generally messed about with it before saying, "they are all like that"

    I know a few of you guys have had new 'boxes over this problem, but just how bad does it need to be.
    Monkeybusiness posted a similar thread a while back about stiff gearchange, and like him I could live with it but, if there is something that could be done I would defo do it!

    Get the impression they are just fobbing me off.
    Cheers P

    That would be this one then: http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread...t=Field+Remedy ... on Page two Mark GSI 3.2 suggests that this box would have reverse at the bottom right ... if this is the case then it could well apply to your car.

    Cheers guys, just got back from the dealers, apparently my car is too new for that field remedy to apply.
    They have adjusted the linkage again, seemed ok on the way home. Further testing required.
