Re: Can't select 5th or 6th gear
I would suggest it's an internal gearbox problem, but before that check the linkage is secure on top of the box, you'll need to pull out the battery try to look properly, but they do have a habit of coming loose. Failing that you'll need to whip the end plate off the end of the gearbox to expose the ends of the internal selector rods, clean out all the swarf that's built up there then refit the cover plate, next pull the gearbox drain plug and empty out any oil that may be left, clean off the plug, refit it, remove the refill plug and top up the gearbox (as long as you've had that seal replaced it'll stay in there now) 2 litres should do it, fit the filler plug, refit the battery tray and battery, it should nowbe OK.
