My car has come out from the bodyshop following a repair (probably been stood for most of the 2 weeks it was in) and since its return I have noticed that the gearbox feels a bit dodgy. Not sure if I had got too used to the smooth action of the gearchange in the 57 plate 1.8 zafira we had as a courtesy car (quite impressive but a little lacking in low down pull).
Im having a bit of difficulty getting it into 1st and then 2nd when cold especially after reversing it off the drive, problem gets better after its been run a bit.
Could this be a gear linkage problem or is it just a gearbox design issue.
I think its the f23 ( 03 plate zafira gsi) gearbox.
Any advice or experience of this issue would be welcome to make a decision on whether to have it into the garage for a check over/repair.
