Hi there good evening to you
Ok the most common issue will lie with the selector housing on the gearbox
There is a roll pin inside the selector which comes adrift causing sticky/stiff left to right movement
To clarify this pop the gear cable end off the selector housing and manually move it by hand
This will likely be stiff thus indicating an issue inside the selector assembly
We don't see many issues with the gear cable side of things as it tends to always be a selector assembly issue
