Problem selecting 2, 4, 6 th gear

Recommended Posts

My 996 C2 has recently started misbehaving, it's getting harder and harder to select second, fourth and sixth gears. All the forward ones work ok (reverse, first, third and fifth). There is also a squealing sound when I put in the sluggish gears, as is it audible inside the car, I reckon it's from the ball joints in the shifter. I do have the B&M short shifter installed, but it has worked fine for 1,5 years. Could this be as easy as lubing up the ball joints again or am I looking at something more problematic here?Also, we've gotten a fair deal of snow lately and the temperature is below freezing, if that can be related?Pic related, kinda:%25252Fstorage%25252Femulated%25252F0%25252FDCIM%25252FCamera%25252FIMG_20130124_052116.JPG
