Gearbox issue after reconditioning
On mine 2006 159 JTDm 8v, the gearbox was reconditioned because of the broken bearing. All bearings were replaced and I am now experiencing movement of the gear knob when accelerating and de-accelerating. The cables seem ok, as it is easy to engage gears. Maybe the shafts in the gearbox are slightly moving depending on the gear, but I am not an expert on this. In the first gear there isnít any movement, so I donít think it is a matter of engine and transmission support. In all other gear there is some movement present and its intensity is in correlation with the level of RPM. When changing gears it behaves ok.
Any idea or experience will be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
