Where can I get a return spring for the gear stick to bring it back into neutral?
I will give it a go too this weekend. Mine is sticky too.Hello, thanks to all the useful advive on here I have successfully fixed my neutral spring return.
When I removed the heat shield under the car I found that the spring was intact and in place, so I sprayed some WD40 and Grease around the area and now the gear shift is as smooth as butter and returns completely to neutral!!
Thanks for the links next time i’ll Remember and really needed it as it was annoying lol£26 for a spring? Almost Unbelievable! The price of not doing your due diligence search for some of these multipack galvanised assorted springs at £2 that will do the job just fine.

Yeah when I went underneath there was no spring there it must’ve broke or been misplaced as I’ve put short shifter on itA previous old K11 that I bought 5 five years down the local car auction cheap as chips, the gear lever was floppy not centralising in neutral. I found the springs hanging in position with the other ends snapped off.
As referred to by Polly P above, A simple repair using needle nose pliers to reform duplicate the springs hooked ends and reinstated at zero cost.
My kind of ten minuet DIY easy job!
