Brought a 147 today big Problem?
Hi having collected a 52 plate 147 2.0 ts for the sum of 944 pounds there is a major issue (ebay item no 220453706564) It dosent stay in 5th gear I you change firmly and hold it there with some force all is well,If you dont hold it firmly enough the gearstick shakes and the car shudders as it tries to pop out. if you let go it pops out straight away. The linkages feel a bit sloppy. Other gears engage without to much trouble. Also clutch bites well but very near the floor.
Any ideas as to what the likely cause (gearbox!!)
