In need of help!! Very stiff neutral

Problem with gearbox when car gets hot neutral is very stiff. Real pain to find gears when hot, ok when cold but when driving for some time moving gear lever form side to side in neutral is very hard. Any idea? apart from that cars brilliant, just doing my head in. Feels like no lubrication. Thanks

Fairly common issue - if you look on top of the gearbox you'll see where the cables attach - get someone to move the lever side to side while you watch and you'll see where the pivot is - the mecanism needs stripping and lubing, or at worst replacing....if you do a search there should be some pix of the operation on here.....
