    Shifter question

    I have a question about the shifter in my car. I have a 1990 g60 and recently had the transmission and shifter cables replaced. Since that happened I now have to push down and left for reverse AND first. Is this something normal? Or should I replace the shifter cables again?

    Thank you!

    Might need adjustment at the gearbox end. Just check the bolts are not loose. In neutral the selector tower on the box should not have moved.
    Actually, first check the small circlip on the gearstick is still in place!

    I also have to go down and to the right for second. Could making those adjustments explain that as well?

    might be. Check for the circlip first and whilst you're there just see if there isn't any excessive play in the plastic pivot that the circlip sits in. It may be that you need a spacer washer to tighten it up a bit.

    There is a guide on here somewhere - its quite straightforward to do and i'll see if i can dig it out, unless someone can post it first. Dox is one of the masters of finding lost threads!
