Customer Question

I have a Vauxhall Signum 2.2 petrol with manual gearbox. I have been on a long run, 60 miles, and having stopped for a refreshment drink, 30 minutes, the gears had become very stiff, with reverse impossible. The car runs well once in gear.
Can you advise what the problem may be.
Thank You

Hi..Sorry for delay - I see your question is still live... Do you still require any help with this..?


If so -


Is this difficulty in getting gears all through the gear ranges?


When you finally get the car into gear and moving is the gear change issue still the same?


What it like when first starting from cold?


Any unusal noises from the gearbox aswell as trying to get it in gear and noises during that?

As I heard nothing I have sent the vehicle to a garage for them to take a look tommorrow morning.

Thanks for getting back after I had requested a refund.


I cannot assess your service as it is the lack of response that I am unhappy with. Probably the web should not indicate a person is waiting to reply. This lead me to believe a response would be with me in minutes not 18hours later.
