Hi
We a very happy with our ”new” Espace and everything works perfect, except for one minor problem: Quite a lot of force is necessary in order to move the gear stick sideways. The gearshift softens up quit a bit when the engine is warm.
I will assume that the gearshift is with cables (I have not yet had time to check it out) if so will it be possible to grease the cables or will it be better just to order a new set of cables right away.

Is there anybody out there who has any experience with this problem?

I have downloaded the workshop manual I think from  Matrasport.dk but I have not been able to locate any information regarding the gear linkage.

An up-date
As I was advised that a new gear linkage would be expensive I decided to try to fix the existing cables.
As the gear linkage is very difficult to get access to (working on a Murena is easy compaired to the Espace) I just greased the cable ends near the gear stick with some penetrating oil. The result: Now a few months later the gearshift works perfectly!
