1 and 2 gear difficult to select after a speedy 50Km drive.
« on: August 08, 2010, 08:35:19 pm »
Hi all, after a speedy drive downshifting to second and first goes a bit difficult, does this indicate to worn gears or clutch or just need a oil change? I don't know when it was done, previous owner didn't do much maintance.

Do the two HEX bolts to fill and drain the oil have a seal that can be re-used? Is there anything special to consider when changing the gearbox oil?

Thanx for the help.
