gearbox problem....

hi guys,

well i have my 147 up for sale & a guy came round to test drive it. Now apparently it has a problem getting into 3rd at times (maybe i've gotten so use to the shift that i didn't notice the problem i'd have to be honest & say its never been an issue for me)

any ideas on what sort of things could be wrong & what sort of money i'm looking at.

Oh BTW he said he'd "think about" it, which means "no" (why do people find it so hard to say no??

Re: gearbox problem....

Re: gearbox problem....

its a manual box?

maybe it needs the oil to be replaced.

I'm willing to travel to look at it if you wish.

PM me if you want to arrnage a time/date.

Re: gearbox problem....

It's a manual I would imagine as it is a 1.6. Get yourself some decent gearbox oil like Redline which I have put into the 146 made a nice bit of difference to the box.
