Angry Gear change cables

Hi my gearshift has become stiff and the garage tells me that I need new gear change cables. Apparently they’ve been superseded from the original version and if my cables aren’t the superseded ones then I’ll need an additional bracket and a gear-lever at a cost of several hundred pound. Has anybody come across this before and are the Original cables still available from somewhere. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Barry Sellers

I don't recall this problem being previously reported, but if you use the Search facility you might find out. The Antara manual gearbox is acknowledged to be clunky - particularly when engaging 2nd. The general advice was to learn to live with it. I have.

check your gearbox oil level. Never heard of this before, mine is nice and smooth. Richy
