FIAT 500 II Gear shift is very stiff.

Im sort-of pleased I couldnt find any thread discussing this problem because it suggest this isnt a massive problem like the gaiter falling apart door handles falling off rusty sumps after six months (1.3 diesel) stop-start not working bulging air bag covers exhaust back-box rusted through after 3 years and im sure other bits and bobs. Our 500 gear shift is very stiff I mentioned this at the last service

Its unlikely to be the box itself I suspect itll be the two gearbox linkage cables

For the benefit of others with this problem our dealership has finally decided on a source which is a little more complex than just cleaning the pivot-point at the top of the gear box. He described a rod that goes into the gearbox that needs attention and talked about easily two work though he did assure me this was a solution which suggests all the other solutions were a guess. This particular fiat

View Gear cable for FIAT 500L

People are all talking about the same gear box here yet have different experiences. I think it proves the subjective nature of what a good gearbox is. All gearboxes have significantly worse changes when cold. The changing mech (cables) is almost identical on both these cars too. The 5 and 6 speed versions of any of the models discussed are the same box known as a C514. I dont think it is the most refined

if you dont wait long enough for the gearbox to spin down with the clutch depressed. It is not possible to make a crunch noise whilst going into any gear whilst the car is staionary and the clutch has been depressed for 5 seconds. Only a few cars have syncro on reverse which can make reverse changes quicker and smoother. Yeah. The fact that the gear lever is in the same place on the Panda and 500

have significantly worse changes when cold. The changing mech (cables) is almost identical on both these cars too. The 5 and 6 speed versions of any of the models discussed are the same box known as a C514. I dont think it is the most refined box on the change as some out there in this age of luxury mototring. I dont think it is quite that simple. I own a 6 speed Panda have driven a 5 speed 500

FIAT 500 II Noisy gearbox on 1.2

All Picked up my 500 today. Very very happy except for a slight concern I have re. the gearbox. It seems very whiney in reverse and to an extent in the forwards gears. Im not sure whether this is due to 1. Newness 2. Me being used to the family merc 3. A problem of some description. Has anyone else found this and does it get better

Well the 306 has cable operated clutch which means that when yoy press on the clutch pedal it pulls a cable which then operated the clutch. Incidently on the 306 the clutch cable runs close to the exhaust so its quite common for the lubricant in the cable to dry out which makes the clutch cable stick quite a bit. Basically the 500s clutch works like the brake system on most cars and you 306s clutch works more like the traditional cable operated brakes on a bike. chrisc87 thanked for this post

FIAT 500 II Dualogic problem - no 4th and 5th gear..sometimes

We have a 59 plate 1.2 Lounge owned from new with under 11K miles with a Dualogic gearbox and the Transmission warning light has kicked in again and locked out 4th and 5th gears - is this a common problem Took it to a local specialist who recommended swapping the brake light switch (which has already been done) and said other than that it would need to go to a dealer and refer to fiat. The problem

Thanks for the replies guys - certainly some food for thought there. We have now swapped where we park our two cars so the fiat is on level ground to see if this makes any difference. I have also ordered some Holts Damp Start Autoplast to spray liberally anywhere electrical under the bonnet. I do have the MultiECUScan softwarecables and historically the errors are normally relating to the brake pedal

FIAT 500 II usb cable route.

Well guys today i thought i would route my usb bable for my iphone. As i did not want it draped over the dash. and i can stotre the end in the vent. here are a few photos. Most Easterly Pandas 44sunsets liked this post

No it was simple to remove the trim by the drivers feet Only 3 screws. Then pull the trim towards yo. There are 2 push in clips a bit like the little pocket by the gear stick. Route wire by pedel box and then push the cable up the side of the door. The door seal will allow you to push cable in between the dash and door seal. I may even drill a small hole in the center console so the usb plug is closer

FIAT 500 II Help - cant engage gears

Hi I have a 2011 twinair convertible and up to now have had absolutely no problems with it. Last Saturday when I went to start it after it had been parked up for the week I had trouble getting it into first & reverse gears. Once Id driven it for a while the problem disappeared and when I drove it last Sunday there were no problems - it was engaging all gears normally. Just got into it this morning

FIAT 500 II abarth 500 reverse gear

Anyone noticed that the reverse gear of the A500 is a bit underpowered My driveway is a bit uphill and im having a hard time reversing out of it. I feel like im labouring the car and we all know that this is bad especially on cold starts

Originally Posted by hot_fiat Im not sure but I reckon the rear brakes are activated a little bit via the hill hold when you put it in reverse. Not a lot but enough to make the car work.

I have heard others say that reversing is awkward even on slight

Hi guys. I have read various threads on aux connectors for non B & M stereos but dont seem to have found a conclusive this is the part required answer.

If anyone thinks otherwise then please say but i will feed back positive or negative if this works. Plan is to fit this

If I was fitting the adapter I would look into setting up a Bluetooth receiver like the one from gear4 powering it though the USB socket (Note I havent done this) so that the music from the iphoneipod could play wirelessly.

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 HELP Major gearbox problem

Hi all - I am new to these parts Anyway I have just recently bought a nice low mileage Cinq Sporting in excellent nick which I spent ages looking for as I have bought it with the intention of cherising it and keeping it for a long time I have done over a thousand trouble free miles in it until this morning.... I went to drive it and the gearbox is suddenly very stiff 1st and 2nd are nigh on impossible

the clutch just needs adjusting. Open the bonnet. Get someone in the car to work the clutch lever up and down while you look down at the gearbox. Youll see a big bar moving back and forwards and on the end of that a nylon nut thingy. Turn that clockwise two or three times go for a spin round the block see how it is. It is a good idea to check the gearbox oil. Buy some gearbox oil (the stuff your fiat

FIAT 500 II Very impressed 1st time starting

Hi everyone Well my 1.2 lounge has been untouched on the drive for the last two weeks. Well not quite true as my son fired it up and repositioned it a few yards in order to move his car into the garage a week ago. This morning I fired up the 500 and took it for a spin. Ive never waited for the dash warning lights to go out before cranking the engine Ive just turned the key full on. This I did as normal

I think using 2nd gear when starting from rest in the 500 is the answer here. I didnt

FIAT 500 II Handbrake holding ability on steep gradient

I was hoping people could shed some light on this. My 500C TwinAir Lounge cannot sit stationary on a steep gradient when the handbrake is applied the car rolls. I raised this issue with the dealership service centre they checked and adjusted the handbrake and said its fine. I tested the car on some steep hills again and its exactly the same as before it rolls after I apply the handbrake (parking brake).

firmly and pull it up as far as it can go Now the question is of course how steep is too steep I noticed there was one car parked on probably the steepest part of the street so I know its definitely possible for some cars. If its a fault with my handbrake what can I ask the mechanic to checkadjust -- seeing as the dealership already adjusted the handbrake previously with no improvement Would the 500S

FIAT PANDA My gearbox - again

My 100HP has been in and all the linkages and cables have been checked so the only things that havent been checked are the internals (the oil level has been checked btw). They say there isnt a fault. Im getting the impression that they dont care about it and just want to get rid of me. I tried speaking to a guy about it (the person that had driven it previously) and it was obvious that he wasnt interested.

were matched making a seamless crunch-free change.... If its doing it in all gears I too would suspect clutch drag wrong adjustment. Yes I can do super smooth gear changes but not very often in my 100HP. I often dont get it perfect but a good gearbox shouldnt really need it to be perfect. Even when I double declutch a lot of the time it still doesnt feel particularly smooth in the 100HP. In the 500

FIAT UNO II Is it my gearbox

The gearstick is very stiff but it goes into all them when the car is in gear and moving there is a grinding sound but its not there when the clutch is pushed in apparently the clutch cable has been changed recently as it snapped on the previous owner less than 500 miles ago basically. the clutch pedal only has to be bought off the floor about an inch maybe less for the car to be pull off etc. Im hopeing

Travelling back from North Lincolnshire to Kent today I passed an 08 plate BMW a new type Mini a Civic and a Vectra - all with their bonnets up and the passengers waiting behind the barrier. My 500 diesel ran like a dream covering nearly the whole journey at 3000 rpm (an indicated 80 mph) and returned 66mpg on the read out. It was parked straight in the garage and it was as though it had been there

Think in all the fiats Ive had the only thing that has stopped me getting where I want to go was a snapped gear linkage cable on a cinquecento. Luckily I was going downhill and so gently coasted to a stop. Got rescued by AA as I was still in the first year of warranty and it was replaced. Not a days trouble after that. Even the stilo didnt let us down I was told once that Rolls dont break down they fail to proceed.

I bought this kit for my Grande Punto and it was the same kit that fits the 500. It plugs into the back of the head unit and a cable runs from the back into the footwell or by the gear stick. The cable has an iPod connecter on end and the steering wheel controls control the iPod. The usb is only on the B&M specced models. Hope that helps.

Is there anything that can be done to improve the obviously flawed drive by wire signal Nothing happens for 1-2 seconds.
