    Help!

    I came off the motorway last night and as I turned onto the roundabout I heard some sort of grinding noise and couldn't select another gear as normal. I then managed to do so and carried on home with no problem.

    This morning I started the car up but can't get the car into any gear.

    Before I start calling round my local garages in Maidenhead to see who can come and collect it to have a look, does anyone have any ideas on what it could be - clutch (feels "normal") /gearbox,other?.

    It's an A4 Avant SE 2.8 1997

    Many thanks to anyone who can give me some suggestions

    Hi

    Gearstick feel seems no different to before. I can push the clutch pedal down as normal but can't get the stick to engage any of the gears at all.

    Still might be the linkage on mine all i needed was a new bolt that hand sheered. You would need to get a look under the car to be sure.

    OK - thanks for the advice. Will have a look later.

    Once I get the plastic splash guard off underneath the car, whereabouts should I be looking?

    Just hope it's not the gearbox!
