The 147 has quite a vague gear change, it's just not very tight or mechanical feeling. This wouldn't be an issue but its rather difficult to select 2nd and reverse.

2nd you get used to once you know where it is, but sometimes it wont go into reverse at all, or will grind the gears. If I select 1st and then go to reverse it usually engages but there is very little feeling to it...

Suggestions?

It could be the selector mechanism bushes if it's stiff across the gate but I think it sounds more like the housing for the ball at the bottom of the gear level has worked its way loose - Its bolted to the transmission tunnel, which you have to remove to retighten the bolts...

Take the leather gater off the gear lever and see if the white plastic housing is loose.
