    Default 1970 id19 sloppy gear lever

    Hi,
    Has anyone fixed a sloppy manual gear lever on an ID/DS? I find mine to be a little "loose" feeling. It engages gears no worries but it takes finesse finding the gear slot.

    Hello, have you checked for play in the linkage at the rear of the engine bay? There are two castellated nuts, top and bottom of a short rod. Once the split pin is removed, you can undo the nut, clean the mating surfaces, grease and reassemble. You need no slop, but not nipped too tight.

    Also check condition of the gear selector rod for condition of the bushes (black rod from selector to gearbox). . .

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Also have a look at the pivot mounted on the chassis rail supporting the rod that bolts up to the gearbox. The plastic pivot bush wears out eventually and the thing can become very loose. When you pull the lever towards you or push it away, it's operating a cable that goes to the gearbox and lubricating that may assist.
