Finding it hard to get into 4th gear

On my way home i raced an Audi TT up a very steep hill and on the way up all was going well until i went to put it in 4th, it was like pushing the gearstick thru rubber.

Any ideas?

PS. I'm not sure what TT it was but it didn't start pull away from me until i couldn't get it into forth, the little 1.6 Twinspank performed well!

Yep that sounds like a classic problem, you've probably got a load of gunk in the gear box, it will need to be stripped and cleaned ... there's a guide on showing you how ...
