Gear linkage adjustment?

Recommended Posts

My gearbox has been quite awkward from day 1 and is actually becoming worse selecting gears

Selecting 1st is a faff on most times and going from 1-2 requires the lever going to the middle/right then down/left for 2nd. It won't simply go down from 1-2

Recently however 3-2 is becoming impossible. On the road or track.

Did it to me a few times on spirited or pottering around road driving and today at the track I literally could t go from 3-2 for a hairpin. It literally would not go in and the more I tried it actually blocked 3rd

I'm sure it's just a simple cable adjustment but I haven't done it in these cars before

Anyone know how to do it right?

Thanks

Car is a new elise s BTW

I bought the gearshift improvement kit from Elise Parts which replaces the rubber bushes with nylatron ones. £50 and an hour to fit with a night and day improvement to the gearchange :)

Be worth popping back to the dealer under warranty in the case. Free & easy fix :)
