My gear stick squeaks when selecting gears, pulled the gaiter open and sprayed wd40 onto the nylon dome at the base of the stick but no different, has anyone fixed this?
If it ends up being that smooth it must be a good fix :lol: Iwill give it a try - thanks for the detailed response! Would you recommend any particular kind of grease?If it's a TS..Get your head in the engine bay.. behind the clutch slave cylinder..behind and above the gearbox.. you can see the ends of the gear linkage rods.. there are three of them.. they all have joints.. grab a handfull of grease and work it into each of the joints.. wiggling the rods and getting someone to change gear while your doing it.. don't chop your fingers off.. the other end is almost impossible to get to without removing the exhaust and doing it from underneath.. doing the gearbox end has always cured my squeaks..
the above combined with a gear oil change and the box will be as smooth as snake sh*t
I had a squeeking stick and solved it by lubricating the joints mentioned. I think there's rubber bushings in the joints, so you should avoid petroleum based lubes. Silicon grease would be correct for rubber and plastics. I was in a hurry and did it the quick way with silicon spray. Did the job, but you'll never know for how long.If it ends up being that smooth it must be a good fix :lol: Iwill give it a try - thanks for the detailed response!

To be completely honest I never got around to it BUT somehow the squeak has now cured itself! I think the best option is to lube up the linkages as mentioned above - imagine it will come back to haunt me in the end.What did you finally do and what products did you use. I have the same problem.
