156 selespeed

i have a 156 selespeed the fllor shift has started not to want to select going up the gears. it is fine comming down the box and selects reverse ok, works fine in city mode and with the steering wheel button . is there a switch at the base of the floor shift that may need to be replaced.

Re: 156 selespeed

There are three switches for the lever (forward, backwards, sideways), but they are not listed separately.
So you either need the complete unit (about £95 for a new one), or you can be very brave and try to strip your existing lever to see if it will come apart.

How are you managing to select 1st gear to move off...?

Re: 156 selespeed

when in city it takes on or two attemps to get first then your away, so i guess the switch is not totally broken just tired, out of the three switches going up the box is the one used the most, do you know how hard it is to change, we also had a peririod that it would jump from second to 4 using the floor shift, city and buttons have always worked as advertised.
