Hi, My 2008 convertible has a stiff gear lever from side to side across the gait but is ok from front to back. the cables had been replaced before I bought the car ( Jan 21 ) and it was fine then, the problem has got worse over the winter. I have disconnected the cables at the gearbox end and the lever is loose and free. the problem seems to be with the selector mechanism on the top of the gearbox. Can anybody tell me how to rectify this? Many thanks.
