    Can you select them easily when the engine isn't on? Could be a linkage issue or a sycro... hopefully just a linkage issue!

    Sounds like a snapped selector fork to me. Common problem on the 6 Spd boxes sadly. The selector snaps and the 3rd-4th gear synchro is stuck on 4th, happened to a mate of mine at the ring at Easter, £500 for a gear ox rebuild with new selector, new 4 th gear and a replaced bearing. Not sure what the labour would be as we removed and refitted it ourselves
