2nd Gear stiff

Post by LeFrog » 09 May 2005, 14:47

Engaging second gear on my 5 speed manual box is a tad difficult. There is no crunching, it's just stiff - enough to make you think about it when changin gear. I've only done 30,000 miles.
I'm wondering whether I need to look at the gear linkages.

Gear linkages are a good place to start but I'd also check gear box oil level too and perhaps change the oil regardless.
