147 "sticky" gearbox

I'm having a few gearbox issues. When you're in Neutral you can usually wobble your knob (not the technical term but I知 sure you get where I知 coming from ) but as I move it towards 1st/2nd it stays there and likewise when I move it towards 5th/6th. It痴 not an issue when in neutral but as I知 travelling I keep missing 3rd etc as you rely on your knob going back into the middle to get into 3rd/4th.

I致e done 13,500 miles and the car is still under warranty. Any ideas about what the problem is and will it be covered with the warranty and if not will it be costly to sort?

Cheers, in advance.

Do a search on this one as there are many posts about it. I took the shaft and mounting off the top of the gearbox that the cables attach to on my daughter's 147, cleaned it up, fitted a grease nipple, greased it and refitted it. Now smooth as anything. Yours should be covered under the warranty, they'll probably replace the assembly.

It looks like this:-


Ignore that it is for a 156, it is the same.
