Driving home last night and had a couple of problems with my gearbox. Seems to be stuck in 3rd gear
had a look when I got it home, got the gear lever free and cables seem fine was changing through all gears,mechanism on top of box moves fine but internally seems to be in 3rd (hope this makes sense) will not go into neutral neither
Then it hit 5th and gear lever stuck again so after browsing through the posts last night it seems to point to the selector fork on the 3rd gear come off rivet or broken don't want to mess any more and guessing its gearbox off time. As it now seems to be stuck either in 5th or maybe still in 3rd and trying to select 5th as well
So if any one can shed some light on best way to remove gearbox and what is involved in fixing it I would be grateful and any advice most welcome
Will I be best getting a manual from eBay or is there one anyone could help me out by sending me the relevant bits gearbox removal/refit and strip down to fix offending part(s)
also if any of you guys have attempted this before and have any advice which could help I would appreciate it as I will be attempting this on the drive at home with basic tools jacks etc.
sorry for the long post but am hoping I can fix it as the labour alone from a garage would cripple me as clutch was changed only about 8000 miles ago and I realise a garage would want to change everything & the costs add up and if I do it myself will probably be a good time to change the top mounts and anti roll bar bushes
I will try to take some photos to help others when I do
