SOURCE: Gear lever stiff and does not return to the centre

Hi, Permanant fix, take to garage and get them to replace link shaft on gear change mechanism. Or temp fix, get a tin of WD 40 with the plastic pipe that can be pushed onto the spray nozzle. Get a chopstick or simillar. Put chopstick down side of gear rubber gater. Do this by pulling blue rubber gater away from gear knob and gently inserting chopstick down into gater. Put the WD 40 plastic pipe down gater alongside the chopstick and spray a good amount. then roll the chopstick around to another possition and spray more WD 40. repeat until you have done it four or five possitions covering all round. Job done.

My gear is stiff and experiencing a difficulty when engaging second gear. other gears seems to be fine but the shifting is not smooth.


I suspect that it will be in the shift mechanism
If it is a cable shift then replace the cable
If it levers or other linkages check and adjust or lubricate as required
I doubt it is in the clutch as you haven't mentioned difficulty in selecting first gear only shifting from 1 to 2nd.

Stiff gear changing


I presume this is a 5 speed manual transmission? Is it actually the gear lever that is stiff to work through the gear changes?
first thing to do is drain and refill the gearbox with new oil.
while you are under there, check that the linkages are not rusted or crudded up. If so, free them up and lubricate them well.

Ive replaced clutch and gear lever cables but it still is stiff going down throught the gears also had new gearbox on a j2 lantra


1. replace your gear oil.
2. is this an automatic or manual transmission engine? if manual, adjust your clutch release a little higher than usual to let your clutch engange earlier.

Stiff gear lever


the lever is greased from the factory and at 60k km that grease may be displaced. if you are handy enough to remove the center console around the shift lever, you can re-grease it yourself. also where the cabling connects to the transmission may be in need of adjustment if the aforementioned solution does not correct it. also be sure and service your transmission (fluid/filter changes)
