(only in this section cus its not hot rod related)
Hi all, I have a citroen c1 (dont laugh) .... as my driving instructor car ... the gear change is stiff when cold, and sometimes you really have to force 1st gear to even get it in. ... but when it warms up its much better.
My initial thought was incorrect gearbox oil, the only thing that makes me ask is, its been serviced by citroen since new and not had a gearbox oil change done (so surely it should have the correct fluid in it from the manufactures).
What else could cause this? .... clutch or gear linkage maybe ?
The citroen needs special gearbox oil for some reason (total quartz 9730.A and I cant find out what viscoscity this is to change it myself, the local motor factors and halfords both said ... "main dealer mate".
Any help would be sooo greatly appreciated ... citroen want nearlly £100.00 to swap the gearbox oil ... and I dont want to pay it if its not that ...... I'd rather spend the money on me pick up
