Re: citroen van 1.9 1998 gear stick gone floppy mybe the gear linkage

I don;t think they're linkages, but cables. Maybe one of them has snapped?

Does it change gear?

I realised I uploaded the wrong diagram! (I got excited because I found out there's an RPM sensor...)

This is what the controls look like:

It's mine, but yours will likely be the same.

I'd say though you're probably best taking to a mechanic who will be able to accurately diagnose it and fix it.

Re: citroen van 1.9 1998 gear stick gone floppy mybe the gear linkage

Had this happened on my 2002 on a road trip to Spain. It was item no2 on the second diagram. The ball joint socket is plastic and just fell to bits - and disapeared. The garage I went too said that you could just use a tie wrap to hold it in place - I went for the new one. Anyway it's impossible to get at this without getting it up on a ramp.

Whats this? 

Can we have a rev counter then?


(btw... that battery is doing great.  Two nights out with no problems and then it even started the van when I flattened the starter battery.)

Re: citroen van 1.9 1998 gear stick gone floppy mybe the gear linkage

Reading this it sounds like As TEE_CEE says it's popped off the linkage or it's got a broken gear change cable ............. Kenbw2 is correct a mechanic is probably to be your best bet as fitting new cables if required is do-able but a pig of a job I'm told....................
