    Hi,

    Check the selector cables & the selector mounted on top of the gear box, get someone to change gears whilst looking at them, not catching on anything?

    Regards
    James

    That's a bummer Dan, hope you get it fixed. Post up the solution to the problem when you find it. Is it actually slotting into the 6th gear position but not engaging or is it just not possible to move the gearstick into the correct position for 6th?

    try looking at the vid in post 7 of this thread.

    Clutch pedal fixed! But now there is no 1st or 2nd gear!

    The video is pretty useful, that didn't solve it for me so I had to have a new gear box, but these circumstances are completely different fingers crossed for you!
