    205gti gearbox (a little stiff)

    when changing b/n 1st and 2nd it is often very stiff especially in the morning and when the car has been resting for a few hous, i hav only had it for a few months and it has always been like this , so don't go blaiming me. it is also hard to get into reverse, you have to go into 1st first and even then it sometimes still grinds, i have resorted to turning the car off before i do any backward motoring. any clues? linkage, syncros gears of drive it till it busts properly a get a fresh one.

    i've heard castrol syntrax is meant to be fantastic, on peugeot gearboxes specifically and expecially for problems in the morning.
