I'm having trouble changing gears in my 2007 Vauxhall Vivaro - what is the issue?
I've been driving our recently purchased 2007 Vauxhall Vivaro and, after doing approximately 800 miles, the gears now have to be "forced" into place. Even at standstill. It had 80,000 miles on the clock but the gears were lovely at first. They started off being hard to select first, but now I have to push all the gears in. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Could be the clutch. Or could be the signs of a transmission problem. Did you buy the van from a trader or dealer? If so, I’d suggest taking it back as they will be liable for any fault that develops within the first six months from the date of sale.
