    Default Vectra C 1.8 SRI notchy / sticky gearchange

    My sons 1.8 SRI has a really sticky gearbox, selecting 1st / 2nd seems hard enough, all other gearcganges seems notchy too.

    She's only done 47k miles, I'm pretty sure the clutch is ok, I'm thinking gear linkage cables, possibly an oil change?

    I'm sure I read somewhere about the fill level being around 2.8 litres or so from the factory, but some revision taking that level down to 2.4 litres?

    Anyhow, in the meantime used some white grease on the cables whilst going through the gears more than a few times and it seems to have improved qute a bit.

    Any ideas / suggestions welcome

    Yup there was a TIS Field remedy for a notchy gear change involving less oil. Sorry can remember what the volumes were though. Its the F17 box if anyone can help.

    To do the oil change on the F17 you need to remove the reverse light switch(do this first) and remove the gearbox sump plate(8-10 bolts) as there is no dedicated drain/fill plug.
