Taken from the Fiat 500 Club's archive, the principle is the same for the 126.

Hi, if the problem is that some gear are hard to shift or they slide while driving, you need to adjust the gear lever. For that, there are 2 bolts on the right side of the gear shift tunnel, on the base.

If you find issues on the 1 or 3 gear, you need to loose these bolts and push the gear lever to the front
If you find issues on the 2 or 4 gear, you need to push it back.

Hope it helps! I had to do it myself after replacing the linkage and the clutch!
