Autobox Gear Lever pivot - How To

Well, seeing as it seems to be getting more and more common for these pivots to seize up, thought I would give a quick guide Smile
Symptoms are the gear lever is tight to move, difficulty engaging drive or slipping out of D especially when cornering. Please note that this only applies to Auto vehicles

Start by putting the vehicle in park, and applying handbrake. Then get underneath and remove the g/box under tray, held on by 6x 10mm bolts. Mark the cable position with paint or similar

Locate said lever and remove the top nut. It is vitally important that the top one is undone first, otherwise you risk twisting the shuttle valve out of the valve block, and requiring the sump to be removed and your g/box internals stripped…

Before removing the top nut completely, hold the metal part with a 21mm spanner, and undo the lower 13mm nut securing the cable to pivot arm. Once its loose, remove the top part from the gearbox and you will be left with…

The bolt will probably be seized onto the cable, I have found the best way is to hit it off with the handle of a ratchet or small hammer. Some WD40 also helps. You may even manage to leave the bolt part on the cable and remove the rest of it to a vice

Hold the hex part of the metal insert and twist it and apply pressure upwards to remove the plastic bush from the metal insert. Once removed, bin the arm, and you will have this

As you can see, moisture has got into the mechanism and rusted the insert, and swelling it up, causing excess friction and the tightness of it all. Clean it up with emery paper or a wire wheel on a bench grinder or similar until its all clean again. Alternatively, just replace it…

As can be seen in the last 2 pictures, there is a square section, and a smaller rounded section. The square part of it holds the head of the bolt in place, and the smaller part clamps the cable in place. It is vital again that these are correct otherwise you risk bending the cable and breaking the insert. Speaking of which, grease up the insert and place into new arm, refit to cable and fit both 13mm nuts loosely, ensuring bolt is lined up correctly

Its not the greatest picture, but you hopefully get the idea…
Tighten up lower nut first, ensuring the paint marks line up correctly. Once tight, move onto the upper one and tighten up. Torque settings are 10-12Nm. Always tighten up the lower nut first before the upper

Refit under tray and check, run the lever through the gears and feel how free it is again, and enjoy.

gear selector fix

Did this today as i have noticed that over the last week the gear selector has been getting stiffer to move.
Thought I would catch it early.
Easy job following the above instructions. Only problem was that I thought i would try the fix before refitting the undertray and good job I did as the selector wouldnt move and the key wouldnt come out of the ignition.
Then I got HDC fault message on screen and F displayed where the gear indicator usually shows.
No panic, it was just a case of re adjusting the clamp on the cable. What must have happened is that it moved from the original position whilst tightening, even though I marked the position with paint (tippex is good for this type of thing).
My car is just 2.5 yeras old and only covered 20,000. I was surprised by the corrosion found on the insert.
It may be worth all Auto owners dropping the undertray (simple job) and copper greasing the cable clamp/pivot which should stop the corrosion before any sets in. I have coated the whole clamp with copper grease, so I should be back in that area for a while.
Thanks for the photos and info/tips.
