on my 2000 Viggen at 180 k kms its starting to balk when shifting into 5th. it feels like the synchro is causing the issue. if i try a few times more and double clutch it will then go in.
ive driven 900's for decades and its similar to when the car won't go into reverse and i have to roll the car a touch to get the gears to line up (this is after i've shut the car off. if its still running i just double clutch it to spin the gears and they then line up).
on the 9-3, could this be a shifter bushing issue? i know these shifters use a sort of bushing but dont remember how or where they operate.
i'll be following your thread!
