147 1.6 TSPARK Gear Stick Problem
I wonder if anyone can help. I have a 2002 147 TSpark Lusso and am having problems with the gear stick. It's not returning to the centre and is really stiff when moving left to right in neutral. It's making it awkward to go from 2nd to 3rd, 4th to 5th and back again. It gets worse the hotter the engine is. I've booked it in at the dealer, who are 50 miles away, but they can't look at it for a week.
Is it something I can adjust or fix myself or get a local garage to have a look at. I'm a bit worried that by keep driving it I'll make the problem worse or do
some real damage. The chassis no is 311****, so not one of the ones recalled for the gearbox problem?
If not, it would be great to have a few knowledgeable questions/pointers to ask the service people.
In almost 2 years of having the car, this is the first ever problem I've had, and touch wood is easily fixed?
