Never heard of it before but if the temp is really low would affect gearbox oil and make it hard to get gears when cold.

Frosty weather cables cables just freeze up rendering the car useless untill they are thawed out. Gear stick will not move.

i've never heard of that happening to 407, or any other peugeot for that matter. only few times i heard of that happening was on one opel speedster and old opel cadet, its to do with water ingress where it would freeze in joints to which the gearbox levers are connected.

have you had this problem happen or are you just worried about it? if i was you, i wouldnt worry about it. but if it does happen, start the car, leave in running for a bit in the spot until it heats up. after that, check the seals and check for water ingress, dry it out, re-seal where possible and you should be good after that.

I have had the problem every winter since i bought the car new. Usually just run the car for about 20 mins but last winter was the pits, had to train my 11 year old son to slide an electric fan heater under the gearbox so his mum could drive him to school on time
