Hi to everyone,

this are my first thread. I have been reading the forum for a year and a half, since I bought my 2008 Aygo, but I have a ¿trouble? that I don't know how to fix.
Mine is a 2008 Aygo 1.0, with manual transmission. Now have 58.000km (36.000 miles, if I'm not wrong) with the original clutch. I can't determine if I have 180 or 190mm clutch.

I have noticed 2 problems with gearbox:

1. When weather is cold (here in Barcelona cold weather means -5ºC/23ºF, min. the rest of day can be 10ºC/50ºF to 15ºC/60ºF) the gears can be selected, but ir hard to select some ones. This issue only happens the first minutes of run. After 10 minutes, aprox, all the gears can be selected easily.
I think that this problem can be produced by not enough gearbox oil. After a few months I bought the car, I noticed an oil leak between engine and gearbox. Has been repared in warranty: damaged gearbox retainer.
But I think that the garage don't refill the gearbox oil.
Not enough oil can cause this difficult to select gears at the first minutes?

2. The second problem is the excessive looseness on gear stick. This don't depends of any factor. In neutral, the stick has an inch of looseness, approximately. The gear cables can be adjusted/tightened?
I know that exist 2 type of gear cable set, depending on car year of production.
Anyone knows if the second version can fit the older series? This can fix this looseness?

Thank you for all and sorry for my little English (Google translator is my friend :lol: )

If you are practical you can replace the gearbox oil or top it up yourself.
One inch is typical!

I am waiting to gather more things and make an order with the gearbox oil. I saved a "how-to" do this change.

Is not possible to reduce this looseness? :shock:

We had a member on here recently with problems selecting gears. In the end the problem was the rubbers that hold the cables in place on the gearbox.
He decided to replace the cables with new ones.
Google should not problems translating this.

Only use GL4 oil, a multigrade will reduce temperature problems.
If you replace the linkages maybe but there is slack in new automobiles try one during visit to showroom.

To try other car on show room could be a method to verify it.
I have checked the linkage on mine and seems that all right. All in the right place and all rubbers in good condition.
