Is it just a bit slack or are you having difficulty selecting gears?

Can you check the cables at the other end under the cover ?

Do you mean under the gearstick and gaiter, on center console?
I want to check it this weekend.

Usually not. I only have difficult selecting gears when it is very cold. Example... when I am driving on morning (just turned on the car) and I want to select 1st gear approaching to a stop. I can not select 1st up to stay practically stopped (speedometer under 5km/h).
After 10 minutes or less, all gears can be selected smothly.

Most of us have this problem with 1st. Gear.
I changed my gearbox oil a little while back it has helped but not a lot. Again there is a thread on here about the oil a member used and l used it EP70 Titan if l remember correctly. You can do a search here for the thread. Sorry l am not to good at that.

Hopefully another member can find it.

The oil was EP75w

As l wrote it has helped a little, my gearbox has done over
160,000 KLM's so it will never be like new.
1st. And reverse are better than before, l do have play in the gear change but l have got used to it.
It is an old car not sports car.

The issue of 1st gear is not annoying for me. Other 2 cars that I drove usually neither can gear 1st at this situation. If it can be better, ok. If not, is not a problem.
But the looseness is a problem for me because the gear stick is not precisse and sometimes I have a little difficulties so select some gear.
If I can be sure that changing linkage it will be corrected, I will be happy! (And my wife more :lol: She usually drives an Auris Hybrid)

Hello again!
yesterday I revised the gear linkages on my Aygo and I found the misfunciont piece... The lever of the gear stick have a lot of free play. It seem to be to small for its housing. The rest of pieces seems to be in good condition.
(I will upload photos and videos soon)

in that second pic above you can replace those shifter bushings. you can get brass ones and they have a lot less play in them and better shift feel.
apparently all toyota ones are the same as this:
