Hi guys,

it's my first post. I recently bought a this car which seems perfect, even though its done 165k miles. Problem is it struggles to go into any gear smoothly, this in contrast to my last car a 2004 Seat Ibiza which had seamless gear changes. The changing gears is quite rough and a bit of a chore, this includes the reverse gear.

I've done some research and thought it could be down to the synchros, but I'm not certain. The gearbox may have been worn out due to years of use. I thought a manual transmission oil change should be the first course of action and see if there's any improvement.

If anyone's had experience or thought's i'd really appreciate it.
