Hi all. Elise S 2008, crunchy third gear. I'm told that a change of fluid might be all that's needed. On the other hand I'm told that's false hope and I have an expensive synchro problem that should just be booked in ASAP. What's the verdict?

Hi, I think it unlikely it's just the fluid.  I assume you are talking clutch fluid and not gearbox oil but either way I would have thought all gears would be difficult if the fluids had gone thin/porous.

But for the price of a clutch or gearbox oil, why not check that route first. You may be lucky  or pick up a gearbox of e/bay or some of the lotus forums if it comes to that it might be cheaper than a gearbox rebuild. I assume this is a Toyota engined S2?
