    Default Gear Stick Stiff

    Hi, I have an 06 TD4 Freelander 35000 miles. Over the last few weeks I have noticed the gear stick becoming stiff, when i change from 2nd to 3rd. Before the gear stick would self centre, now i have to point it in the right direction if you know what i mean to change gear. Is it because of the weather being so cold and the oil being a little thicker.

    Has anybody else noticed the same with their gear sticks.

    Any suggestons gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Graham

    I had the exact same thing in the middle of summer last year and mentioned it to the guy (a Land Rover specialist) when it was in for a service. He said he simply 'gave it a spray' (of lubricant?) and it was fine after that.

    It may just be something as simple as that!

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. Do you know if he just used WD40 or another type of lubricant.

    Thanks

    WD40 will be very temporary. Try some silicone grease or Spray White Grease.

    Thanks Llanigraham for the reply,

    I have some silicon spray that I use for the caravan, but not any silicon grease or spray white grease. I think a trip to Halfords is on the cards tomorrow.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your help guys, got some white spray grease today, sprayed all around the linkage. It now works a treat, nice and smooth. Thanks Graham
