Zafira c - Shift knob not returning
#1
Hello to all.

I have a 2012 Zafira C (Tourer) and started to have a problem in the shift knob.
The shift drives normally for shifting gears, but the gear does not return to its original position by itself.
Same as this video : You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

Can anyone help, or already had this problem?
IS there an "easy" solution for this?

Thank you

probably needs the gear linkage adjusting, which does not take long to do

Hello.

Does that job needs a qualified mechanic to perform? Or is it someone can do with youtube or something?

Thanks

Then you should have the F40 gearbox.
