Squeking sound when changing gear

  1. Hi NG,
    I have a 306 2.0 HDI from year 2000. I happy about the fantastic car but
    during the past couple of months a squeking sound is anoying me a bit. I
    happens when I change gear from 2. or 4. gear. The sound seems to come from
    just below the gear lever.

    Anyone any idea what causing the sound? I recon it could be some
    fitting/sleeve when translating the gear level movement from vertical to
    horizontal underneath the bottom of the car.

    Can you spray down the shaft? if so it might be a nylon bush drying
    up.or a rubber bush, try and have a look under the shaft cover and
    spray wd40 round it all..

    HI I had the same squeek as you ,but in a 2ltr 406and the problem was the
    sealing ring on the exhaust manufold that holds the front pipe air
    tight,it had been assembled dry,it should have been assembled using a bit
    of high melting piont grease,when i did this it cured my problem squeek,i
    hope this helps somebody

  4. Thanx for your help,
    I think I can live with the sound another month and have a look at it when
    the weather get a bit warmer. We have had a snow storm her in DK a week
