Help Manual 147 Gearbox

I drive a 147, Manual, 1.6, 2001 Reg.

Lately I have noticed that the gearbox has been 'difficult' to handle.

I have always struggled to get the car into third gear but recently have struggled to get the car in gear at all - (causing me to suffer from lots of left shoulder pain!!)

Some days the gear change is absolutely fine, but others I have struggled. It seems to be when the car has warmed up a bit that the gear change is not as smooth...... i.e. runs fine for the first half hour

dose this sound like a new gear box?

Re: Manual 147 Gearbox

is it me and my computer or you really did post this thread three times?!

i had many problems with my gearbox from new but not one of them is the problem you described i am sorry. however if it is only the third gear you are having trouble with then i would guess its not a new gearbox job. im sorry i cannot be more helpful......

Re: Manual 147 Gearbox

If it is difficult to select a particular gear it might be the bush that needs replacing.......... Have a look here....

and here (Gearbox/Clutch problem...? Any advice....?)

I had this problem after two years and it was easily fixed

Hope yours is a simple
