    It has been fixed by a garage- selector bush was dried out due to water getting in- just needed lubricating.

SOURCE: Hi ive got a citroen dispatch van 1.6 hdi 07

you surprise me,these vehicles are bullet proof under normal circumstances and yes the syncros can wear out like any make of vehicle ,but this old grandad who passed his test in a viva with no syncro on first gear ,and passed his hgv on a vehicle with no syncros at all was taught to drive in a different era and rule one was neutral and handbrake on when stopped ,not holding it on a hill by slipping the clutch ,secondly to not put a vehicle in first gear whilst moving ,well it wouldnt go anyway ,double the clutch between gears so as to reduce the wear on the syncros and gears .not to ride the clutch between changing gears and also change down using double the clutch to save the brakes and stop vehicle slipping or skidding on a wet road ,not fly up to a roundabout ,slam on brakes force it into first gear at 30 mph then try to imitate evil kenival by going around on two wheels .This sort of driving will only damage the gearbox like syncros and clutches not lasting very long .

SOURCE: 2003 chevrolet cavalier, manual transmission lost 2nd, 4th and reverse but still has 1st, 3rd and 5th gears.

Sounds like one of the levers inside the transmission is either broken or otherwise disengaged. Remove the shifter to see if you can see any obvious reason.

With the engine off see if the shift between 1st to 2nd feel,s free if not it could be the cable check the clutch is disengageing all the way it should go into reverse without crunching,other then that it could be a synchro ring worn check that the gearbox has the right oil in it.

My citroen 2.8 relay is hard t get into some gears, 1st and 3rd are ok, 5 crunches but 2nd and 4th are hard too get, its asthough something has seized up. any ideas?


Hi. Just a long shot.
Might be an idea to take off the gearbox end cover
and check the mainshaft end nut hasn't worked itself loose.
I've seen this happen a few times.

Will go in gear but car will not move


If the car does not move either forward or in reverse gear, then it may be due the following defects:
- Inner cup of one of the CV Joints may have jumped out of the transmission. (Simply push it back in the transmission forcibly)
- Torque converter damaged.
Or there could be something which has gone bad within the transmission assembly, for example:
1. Manual valve.
2. Valve body assembly.
3. Planetary gear unit.
4. Forward clutch.
5. Number 2 one-way clutch.
6. Reverse clutch.
7. 1st and reverse brake.

Hi guys, have citroen relay '08' plate 2.2 hdi. is the clutch hydrolic or cable? also struggling to get reverse gear, all others no problem at all. any ideas?


It is hydraulic. Are you engaging 2nd gear prior to reverse to slow gear motion and ease reverse effort? Is the engine idle speed with specs?

Citroen Xantia fog and reversing lights not working


Check Fuse F3. It supplies 12v to the reverse switch located on the transmission. If auto transmission (4HP14) the switch will have 4 pins, 2 for reverse light, 2 for starting circuit. If manual, it has two pins. When gear is in other position, only one pin will have 12v. When gear is in R, both pins will have 12v. The 2nd pin supplies directly to the reversing light. Fog light has connectors behind the bumper. It tends to get corroded. Disconnect and clean both side of the connectors and retry. Some may get the wires snapped. Check there first. Fuse F18,F7 and F6 supplies 12v to the foglight circuit. F6 supplies to the foglight relay. Check the relay too.

96 Jetta 2.o liter has no reverse. have to put into reverse for 1st gear. does anyone know if this is linkage or clutch?


At the botton of the gearstick is a small clip that holds your gear stick in place, I had it on my V dub. The stick will slip into reverse but work 1st. It's a small job to replace, remove all the inside gear cowling, and lift out. You will see the clip broken, just take the circlip off, lift off the broken clip, replace with a new one, it's easy. Just Remember that when you put your car in 1st, (reverse) your reversing lights come on, giving the car behind you a bit of a shock, if you are sat at lights etc! Have fun, dave
