Since changing the clutch the gear selection has felt a little notchy so I set about adjusting it last week.First off remove the ashtray by gently pulling upwards and pop the gear gator free, this gives better access to everything. Next thing is to pull the reverse collar up all the way on the gearstick and press in the white tabs either side of the stick so the locking mechanism pops down. This white part slots in the moulding to the left and locks the gearstick in the 1st/2nd neutral position. With that done you can release the cables by flicking the grey and white cable locks upwards. This can be done using your fingers but a small flat blade screwdriver helps. Next thing is to lock the gear selection turret into position on the gearbox. You can do this without removing the battery and battery box as I did but for better access it’s recommend you remove these first. Pull the breather pipe off and using a 5mm drill bit slide the smooth end into the vertical hole above the breather hole gently applying pressure to push it further inwards while pulling the selector turret upwards until it locks into position. With the turret and gearstick locked in position press the grey and white gear cable locks downwards so they click into position. Now remove the drill bit from the turret and click the white gear stick locking bit into its original location. Refit the ashtray and gear gator and you’re all done back to a silky smooth gear change. There is a known fault with the selection turret as a nylon bush can wear causing difficult gear selection but a permanent fix is available with the original bushing replaced with a metal version. Fortunately my turret doesn’t suffer this issue at the moment. After sorting the gear selection the car got a long overdue wash and I even did inside the rims as they were horribly dirty.
