Re: Gear Selector Misbehaving

...In desperation I try some WD40 on every joint/pivot on the cable/switch/rod mechanism at the rear of the car. And the selector now works beatifully.....

Others have said that the cable needs to be lubricated. T...

Well, if the company by itself is not going to close, I think we will be fine to have our unit serviced if needed ;)
