Stiff Gear change on 94(M) 405 GTX

Post by FerozePal »

Afternoon all,
I have had a problem with my 94(M) 405 GTX gearbox for about a week. In both hot and cold conditions when I try to engage 3rd I hear a crunching sound. This only happens in 3rd. Also, I have noticed the clutch pedal and the movement of the stick is getting stiffer as time goes by.
Im only a novice, and would like some advice as to what the problem could be before I approach my mechanic. Oil level in the gearbox seems ok, but I havnt checked the linkagaes properly yet.
Thanks & Regards
