Hi

I'm having problems with my gear change going into 1st, and 2nd into 3rd. Slight bit of stiffness going into 4th and 5th. It seems that the gearstick is stiff going up and down, however side to side is smooth.

I have looked under the bonnet at the top of the gearbox, the part that has the shifter cables on it. This moves freely from side to side but up and down it is very stiff and difficult to move.
I have attached an image of this part

I believe this to be the problem. Would adjusting my linkages help? Or would replacing this part (I don't know it's name) be better?

Thank you

Spray some white grease on the cables in thee area you were looking at and work the gears then spray again .I had this on mine when a hose blew and the coolant washed off the lubrication, reapplying solved it for me.
