My 2001 Mk3 Zetec Gear lever is sticking, really getting on my nerves.

If I push the lever over to the point between 1st and 2nd it will stick and not return back to the normal point between 3rd and 4th.

Same if I move it over to select 5th. It will get stuck and not return to its normal position.

It does seem spring loaded so I force against a spring to get it there, but as soon as it reaches the extent of its travel it sticks.

This means the change from 2nd to third must be a destimctive dog leg movement, no more diagonal push to get to third.

A light tap will bounce it back to its default position but this is really getting on my nerves now having to pull it into the normal position.

The gears themselves select okay, its just an annoyance.
Is there anywhere to grease or lubricate??

Thanks for any replies :sad:
