147 - stiff gear shift lever

The misses 147 seems to of developed a stiff gear shift lever.

Normally, as with most cars, the gear lever is sprung between 3rd and 4th. With her 147, it sticks wherever you leave it, meaning you are also placing it into every gear.
I have had the linkage checked and greased up on the top of the gearbox, this made a small improvement but the problem still persists.

Anyone any ideas?

The selector bushes on the linkage are known to wear on some 147s. They are simple to replace by a garage and should sort you out. Say about 1hr labour?
