After the saga of the broken gear lever housing - here - I finally got round to fixing the stiffness / not centering issue:

Intake off & battery out

Cable unclipped & shoved out of the way (top of first pic) - what is that BTW?

Undid this nut with 17mm socket



Removed the shaft - which looked pretty clean

Then rolled up some fine grade sandpaper & cleaned out the casting - loadsa crud came out



Re-assembled using plenty of grease on the shaft & there is now a massive improvement

What's the cable I un-plugged?

I just followed this guide. Works like a charme - what a difference! It took me about 45 min...

I have this issue on a 2002 2.4JTD.
Is it the same gearbox and therefore easy fix as on the V6 ?
