Hi all, I recently had the clutch replaced in my Lupo GTi and since then the gear shifter doesnt feel quite as positive going into first, third, fifth or reverse. second, fourth and six are perfect, the shifter engages with a satisfying click but 1,3,5 doesn't feel like the gear stick is properly engaging (although it does select fine and doesnt pop out of gear or anything). I have attempted to reset the linkage by locking the gear stick with a 5mm drill bit, and then removing the slack out of the linkage at the gearbox, but I can't seem to improve it... its as if I've taken all the slack out of the cable and it still needs to be tighter. Am I doing something wrong, or could the cable have stretched while the clutch was being replaced? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
is there anyone out there that can tell me what the gear linkage part is, iv got a 1.0 lupo which only selects 3rd & 4th, need to adjust the linkage before i maybe look at the gearbox, if anyone has any pics for helping me that would be brilliant, if i cant get it to work after this im gonna end up putting it up for sale, 2 youngs kids, not practical but i love it
