    Default floppy gearstick!

    Hi

    For some reason when in gears 1 to 5 there is a lot of left/right play in the gearstick.

    In reverse it is fine with no play at all.

    What do I need to check/tighten/replace?

    Thanks

    Sounds like the cables are worn, there's 2 that go to the gearbox to select the gear, either that or the bushes at the bottom of the gear leaver. They are plastic so do wear out if not greased.
