    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

    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?
