Morning All,

Ive recently bought a 1998 Megane Coupe Sport 1.6L, and I have a problem and cant find a solution online so I wondered if I could seek your expert advice.

I cant select first gear, either at all or it takes a huge amount of force with both hands, it is the same story if you are on the move or stationary with the engine off so i'm assume its nothing to do with the clutch as it doesnt improve when the engine is not running.

It is almost possible if you go into 2nd first then slide it up to 1st with a small bit of force.

Any ideas what could be causing this or an easy DIY solution ?

Many Thanks

Hi
Check the front right lower rubber engine mounting.
I guess it's 1.6 engine. Those mountings fail after 8 or so years - engaging the 1st becomes heavy or impossible, you might even engage in reverse thinking it's 1st so beware.
