    My Peugot 106XN has an occasional gear selection problem - only happens
    when in heavy traffic traffic queing situations and when it happens it is
    impossible to select any gear. The only solution is to stop engine for a
    few minutes then restart. Peugot main dealer has failed to find a solution
    - have checked for floor mat sticking under clutch pedal and the clutch
    itself. Any ideas?

    Possible reason

    Some Peugeots have automatic adjuster on clutch cable. Could be that it's on
    "next to failure" mode.
    Don't know if your model has or not but dealer can tell you.

    If you are in heavy traffic then you are probably changing gear every minute
    or so (and slipping the clutch as well)

    More likely to fail under thise conditions..

    Probably a dragging clutch, as opposed to 'slipping'.
    Getting very hot in slow traffic and the driven plate sticking on the
    splined shaft.
    The cure is to put a smidgeon of grease on the shaft- should have been done
    on assembly, but there y'go.
    Could also be a bit of oil contamination on the friction linings. Maybe time
    for a new clutch.
