Megane 225 gear lever issue

Hope its ok to post on here about a megane but I'm assuming there's some knowledge in here for them

I have an issue where the gearstick on my megane 225 sticks between 1-2nd in neutral and is difficult to get 3rd or 4th

Seems like a common issue, does anyone know what I need to replace to fix this? Links or any traders who can sort out what I need?

Any help appreciated

Rich 😊

Is it quite stuff to go left and right when in neutral?
It pretty stiff yea, and as I said it like centres itself between 1st and second gear so is hard to work out where 3rd/4th are

1st/2nd and 5th/6th are ok to find

The white plastic bush needs reaming out as mentioned. Happend on my brother's 225 years ago.

Need to pop the selector out the top of the box and then remove the c clip type thing off the end and slide the rod out.

I'll see if I can find the pics I took from years back.

Yes please mate, that would be much appreciated. I'd like to get an idea of what I need to do before taking things apart 🙂

Doesnt sound like I need to replace anything then

There's a 13mm bolt that is in the side of the box which pins the selector in. It's sort of under the gearbox mount area, if you have a feel around should find it. You'll need a ratchet spanner to do it.

So remove this circlip thing, push the pin through and clean up the inside of the bush and refit? Is that correct?

Had to this on my R26 box I put into my clio. Made it much nicer. Mine wouldn't centre properly, would just stay to the left. 3rd gear was the worst to select.

Yeah haha guess how I found out? Definitely nothing to do with my first post hahahahaha.... 😁🤣🤣🤣

😂

Been years since I've done one, but could have sworn it was a 13mm.

14mm is such an odd size on them, can usually do the whole car with 10, 13, 17, 19mm 😂

Exactly why it threw me off too. 150% a 14mm on them all as I've removed about 6 of them now 😂

Must have something to do with it being a spring ball on the end of the bolt as it's not a standard bolt.
