I've got a 53 reg 2.2HDi Relay and I have a funny gearbox issue. The lateral movement through neutral is very very stiff, and it gets worse the less it's used. I've just had it parked up for a couple of months and it had all but seized up solid. Forwards and backwards (1st into 2nd) is very slick.
Before anyone says cables, I thought that too and I replaced the existing ones and the made no difference. The original ones I removed were completely free, so it's most certainly in the gearbox, or in the selector unit. I think the best option is to remove the gearbox or the selector part (if possible) and have a good look.
Does anyone know of a how-to guide on removing the gearbox or selector unit, or at least has any tips and tricks for doing it? I've worked a lot on cars and vans but I've never tried to remove a transverse gearbox.
Any help would be gratefully received. Many thanks
