    Question gearbox query

    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.

    The Zafira A gearbox is not the slickest. I noticed a marked difference between the Zaf A & B when I had the B as a courtesy car.

    Might just need lubing up as the cars been stood a while, look here Gear changer - making it springier again and look underneath the car to see if the linkages need re-lubing.
