Stiff gear change

06 March 2009 - 10:38 AM

I bought a 98 Verona 1800 recently, two careful owners service history and only 56000 miles, It's In great condition so I'd like to keep on top of things If I can.
The only thing I can fault It on Is selecting second and reverse gear, when used for the first time second gear Is a bit stiff to engage but gets easier after a while, reverse Is a bit stiff to engage permanently.
It's not really a problem but I cant see It getting any better and you do need to wiggle the stick and sometimes use a bit of force.
Is this a clutch problem or does It sound like the linkage. I have a garage and manual and I've done a bit of mechanical stuff In the past, does this sound like something I could tackle myself or something more serious.
I was paid off recently so DIY would be my best option...........Thanks.

Noise behind headlights on a mk 2

I know this question was asked before but It didn't get any replies so I thought I'd try.
I've noticed a noise behind the headlights when the lights are on and the engine Is not running, Is this normal.
It's like a pulsing buzz.....Thanks
