Re: Weird gear change issue
Ok, i think i need to explain this more, as the crunch isnt the problem.
Basically sometimes when i go to change from fourth to either 3rd or 5th the gear lever wont move. Its like its jammed in position, and no amount of effort will move it. Usually by wiggling it slightly it gives in, but lately ive approached major roundabouts and twice its caught me by refusing to shift into any other gear and jammed in 4th. Last 2 times it brought me to a halt, and being in 4th gear i had no chance in pulling off... literally had to **** about wit pressing and un pressing clutch pedal and using brute force til it suddenly unstuck.
It only ever crunches into 4th gear when the above problem happens, as it suddenly goes from its firm feel to really tight and doesnt go in gear correctly, then grinds when i release the clutch pedal.
I hope this explains the issue im having clearer. the frequency of it is increasing, and i rely on my car for a 36mile round trip to work on the A14 every day so it breaking is not an option! Neither is throwing buckets of money at it as money this month is tight.
