Re: My 146 won't select 2nd gear!!! Help!
If the gearchange feels normal when engaging the other gears, the linkage can be ruled out, which means there's only one option left: The gearbox is shot
However, I once experienced a car, well, it was a Hyundai Sonata
that couldn't engage 1'st and 2'nd gear. It turned out to be a stone that had made its way on top of the gearbox thus blocking the gear selector arm
