Gear Change Problem

Recommended Posts

Has anyone suffered a problem with the gear change on an sr180.Just today mine is reluctant to "center" when in the first and secong gate but is fine in the fifth and sixth gate returning as normal

to rest between third and forth. Hope that makes sense.

Is there a way of adjusting this or an exploded diagrem of the shift?

TIA

the 6-speed gearbox used by this, the Avensis, RAV etc. is known to be a bit notchy/obstructive in 1st & 2nd especially in cold weather until it warms up.

A straight 75W Oil apparently improves things.

It sounds like the cables need adjusting. Is getting into the actual gear ok?
