Re: gearbox Question - ?

Do you mean the 1st to 2nd gear change?
If so changing the gearbox oil may help (and will not cost much).
However if the 2nd gear syncro is worn out it may not help much.
Replacing the syncro will not be cheap.

It is worth changing the gearoil anyway to see if it does help.

Make sure you use 75W90 GL5 spec gearoil and make sure the oil you use is suitable for syncro gearboxes.

I changed to Redline 75W90NS gearoil last year, and it is working well.
