    Default Gearbox Problem

    Hi all, just need a bita help!! Car had a new clutch ect put in a few months ago.. The last few days the car has been really hard to put into gear. Its not 'crunching' or anything, just really stiff. My brother thinks it might need blead what ever that means

    Anyone any suggestion what it might be? Could it need gearbox oil?

    Thanx in advance!

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Is every gear difficult, or just the low ones - ie first and reverse? Does the gearbox 'drag' when in gear? ie select first with clutch fully depressed, remove handbrake and does the car try to pull forwards when it's on level ground?

    If so, it would seem likely that the clutch isn't disengaging fully and could either need bleeding, is defective or (rather stupidly) is the carpet restricting clutch pedal movement?

    If these are not the case and all gears are difficult it may be that the gear cables / selectors need adjustment. I seem to think there is some info on here about that. Or could be a worn joint or bush in the selector mechanism.



    (Bleeding means to get all the air out of the clutch hydraulic circuit, air compresses and reduces travel of the release mechanism of the clutch - same as brake system) - I would have thought that if the clutch wasn't disengaging properly it would cause gear selection crash, especially for reverse..... but maybe not if it's only mild.


    Low Gearbox oil doesn't normally impact of selection, unless it is chronic lack of oil.

    Sounds like it needs bleeding, had the same problem with it no engaging any gears on mine a couple of days ago, £20.00 later after they bled it, works fine now.

    Pump the clutch pedal a few times, if it does go into gear after that it could be air in the system.
