    gear change

    Just a Quick one.. on a morning when Cold my Insignia (2.0cdti 2014 F40 box) is hard to get into first gear till warm, if you go into second then into first itís okay but if you try to go straight into first it feels as though it doesnít want to go in.. any advice appreciated. Thank you in advance

    Also have this on 1st and reverse. Try straight forward to third a few times then try first. When my next oil change is done at vs I'm getting my gb oil done too

    Yeah maybe get it changed out when goes for service too, just annoys me on cold mornings when it doesnít want to go in, go to pull away from lights when change and have to select second then first so annoying ha ha

    I had a problem getting my old facelift into first at anything above 10mph it went in for the cable re-adjusted it was better after but was never great 2nd to 1st even after. I think its just a trait of that gearbox

    Had this on my old 2010 insignia spoke with. My mate that worked at Vauxhall and got him to look into this he found that some cars had been fitted with a bad batch of cable linkage that when cold contracted just enough to cause it not to engage into first gear without selecting a gear then working back down into first. Vauxhall changed the linkage and was sweet after.
