In Topic: Problem Selecting Gear 1999 Focus 1.8 Tddi

Dear Mr White.
Thank you for the kind further advice. It may well be worth my while looking into it.
On the other hand the other gentleman that kindly responded to my query felt "without a shadow of a doubt" that the problem was going to be a gearbox problem with worn teeth on 3rd gear.
I would be grateful for further comments on this .
Someone today suggested putting some liquid into the gearbox called Molyslip, saying this might help, reducing wear on the gearbox.
Yours truly
Ian

Dear Sir (Swhite)
I am grateful for your kind advice - I wonder if you would recommend getting replacement cables for the gear selector or just resetting them.
Also would you kindly advise - would I have to install the cables for gear selector through the area near the gear change lever or elsewhere. Is it a difficult job, and as for the cables - how many cables are there and are they expensive.
Would one get new or second hand cables.
your kind assistance is appreciated thanks
Ian
