Peugeot 307 HDi gearbox sticking

My gear box is having problems going into certain gears. It feels like there is a piece of rubber stopping me putting it in gear . It goes from one extreme ie cant get it to go into 2nd or 4th to being as loose that i could blow it into gear. I took it to a garage and had long cables leading from the gear box to the engine replaced but problem was still there. I have taken it to another garage and was told that the clutch pedal has a spring on it that will be the problem so the mechanic removed it and i still cant get it in gear. Its intermittent and can work one minute and not the next.The cables cost mne 200 pounds as the mechanic said they had seized and were the problem. No one believes me and i have to pull into side of road as have no gears. Thank you.

Hi
Have a good look at the parts the selector cables actually attach to. The nylon washers surrounding the ball joints wear away leaving a loose feel to gear changing or complete loss of movement. The selector rods can fail too but I've found usually it's just the rubber or nylon washers wearing out leaving very loose movement, sometimes even jamming when the metal parts crunch together. Look under bonnet and get somebody to wiggle the gear stick as you look at where the cables attach to the selector rods and check for loose play at all the components.
Replacement Nylon washer kits are easy to get hold of.
Good luck.

SOURCE: 2001 Saturn SL Manual Transmission stuck in 2nd Gear

I had this same problem with my 1998 SL2 after about 170,000 miles. There is a plastic bushing at the end of the shifter cable that holds the cable to the shifter - it probably broke. Remove the center console inside the car to access the bottom of the shifter. I checked my local Saturn dealer to find the replacement cables (come as a set) are more than $200. So I went to Lowes and bought a beam clamp and a large washer to hold the cable to the shifter. It has been working fine for more than 28,000 miles and cost less than $3

SOURCE: gear link or box problem

Sounds like a piece of linkage came loose. If it were an internal tranny problem, doubtful that the stick would be loose. Examine all linkage for something very obvious.

How do I check the level of a manual gearbox on a 2002 Peugeot 607 hdi


you will need to consult a manual, some gear boxes need a measured amount of oil in them and the only way to measure is to drain and measure, others have a filler plug on the side of the box and these type are filled with oil until it starts to trickle back out ,don't over fill

Hi!

I own a Peugeot 307 SW 1,6 hdi 2004 which I bought a month and a half ago. It all started with an increasing rattle and sometimes "singing" noise from what i presumed was the gearbox (it`s a manual) and perhaps a bearing problem. At the same time (a week after i bought it) I noticed a small oil leak from beneath the car. After a short examination at the dealer`s we found that there actually was a leak from the gearbox. I got it sorted out and refilled as much as 1,8 l of gear oil (which had leaked out). After that the car works fine, except from a tiny rattle/ singing from the gearbox, especially in combination with gear shifting. I am now concerned that the whole gearbox is going to break down. In case it does, I hope it will happen before 22nd of February (my warranty runs out by then). Glad to hear if you find a solution to your problem, it may have some similarities to mine. PS I`m from Norway, but this or similar problems are not being discussed on Norwegian websites or forums. DS

check around the selector area at the gearbox and where the shift lever sits to see if a harnes section or wire is getting trapped, chafed, or crushed, or if a plug is being pulled when 2nd is selected. The actual gears and box have NO way to cut the engine out so the moving external parts on the gearbox or shift must be causing an electrical cut out by interfering with nearby components.
