The T-Bar shifter in my EB is pretty hard to
move back and forward when selecting gears.
Seems like it could do with some lube or something.

Whats the best way to fix this one..??

If it has trouble with the button in, maybe worn or poorly lubricated notched rail (metal part underneath that button runs on)

If has trouble with button disengaged, transmission craptacular!

Anyone agree?

With button in or out, the shifter is pretty stiff to
move back and forward.

(The tranny changes gears well and seems to be in
general good working order otherwise.)

If the gear selector has been removed recently, it may be on too tight. Undo it slightly and see how you go.

Check the internal selector rod and plastic washer are all good.

That happened to my mates when his sister spilt some coke down there. Just spray some WD40 or RP7 down there and it should free it up.
