Stiff Gear Shift

2671 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Richard G
Hi......Our trusty 04 1.6 Petrol Zetec has developed a very stiff gear change. I've disconnected the gear lever and am certain that the problem is not there as this moves freely.The connection into the linkage is very hard to move. Clutch is working fine.

Would appreciate contact with anyone who has had a similar problem & ideas/outcome.

Many thanks

Detach the gearshift cables from the transaxle.

lIs the gearshift lever difficult to operate?
