Hmmm 146 Manual won't engage gearbox!!!

Hello, My sons 1995 146 1.6 5spd all of a sudden lost its drive as he changed from 1st to second gear. It can be put "in gear" as such but does not engage the gearbox and you can spin both front wheels independently and freely. It only has 119,000k and the only problem prior was a little difficulty engaging reverse. Nothing is "Hanging down" underneath so any suggestions would be welcomed? Cheers Charlie in New Zealand.

Hi! and welcome.: Internal gearbox/transmission problems? Possible gearbox strip down and overhaul or replacement, if no faults found hand to lever, to selectors? Dunno' really, but good luck, and maybe a breakers if the box is Kaput?

This is on a Boxer engine. There is 2 possibilities, either the remote connection from the gear stick to the gearbox (linkage) has become disconncted OR the Diff has just let go.
