My car is going in go a local mechanic on monday and tuesday to get a few bits and bobs done. A while back I saw a thread on people with clios that dont like going into first and second (and sometimes reverse).
Now my first clio rt didnt do this at all, and the gearbox was as smooth as a babys backside... however this one is a real b*****d. Getting it into first and second is pretty much always a chore.
Again, unlike my last clio, the gear lever sits a bit to the right (instead of dead central. Getting into third and fourth is fine... however fifth is a bit too close to central (if that makes sense) and first is a bit too far away!
I have got myself a new clutch cable (was told it could be that..) so am getting the mechanic to look at it. Does anyone know what it is that is causing the really notchy gearbox? (and also does anyone know how easy it is to get the gearknob to sit central?)
Cheers for any help
