All along my gears were changing very smoothly and the pressure required to go from 1st to 2nd to 3rd was very small. Used to be smooth and light. Now since last week it's hard to get into gear. Going from 1st to 2nd it feels like the gear stick is rubbing off the side wall or something, almost squeaking. and from 2nd to 3rd is as hard. Anyone any idea as to what it might be? A mate told me there is a fixing on the gear stick that may be loose, said it's a common problem?
