sticky 156 gearshift

My 2003 156 has developed a very stiff gearlever in the neutral position. This means it is difficult to get from 5th to 4th without searching for the `gate`. There is no problem with engaging gears once the gate is found. Have tried spraying silicon on any linkages I can see with no effect. Any ideas?

I Had this, think it might be some sort of rubber sleeving inside come away and fouling the lever etc. Mine would come and go periodically.
