    Default Gear stick problem

    The gear stick in my vec facelift cdti 150 has gone sloppy! The gear stick won't return to the centre when out of gear. I've had a new clutch and dmf fitted before I bought the car and I think that the gear return linkage has not been put back on correctly .

    My mate (who I bought the car from) phoned the garage where the work was done and was told "Sorry, bring the car back and i'll fix it, it's an easy job" Problem is that the garage and my mate live over 100 miles away!

    I'm fairly handy with the spanners if told what to do , so I was wondering if this is an "easy job". Can the linkage be got at from inside the car or will it need to be on a ramp?

    thanks for any help.

    Right, I've had the problem looked at and I've been told that a pivot pin on the linkage bracket on top of the F40 box is seizing up. The garage contacted vxl to ask about a replacement and was told they (vauxhall) don't do them and I would need to get a new gearbox .

    The garage was as shocked as I was, so they have tried to clean and lubricate the linkage which has helped a little. But the problem still exists and is really pee'ing me off.

    Has anybody else had this problem and managed to cure it, without having to replace an otherwise perfect gearbox?

    Please help as I'm at my wits end with this.
