147 selespeed keeps neutralising
I've had my 147 selespeed since new from 2001 and am having problems with the car neutralising. Not sure if this is what it's called, but basically when coming to a stop the car will sometimes go into neutral and not allow any gears to be selected.
I've had a new actuator installed, my gearbox stripped and put back together and also the computer changed.
Each time i get the car back from the mechanic it is working fine for about 1000km and then the problem starts again.
Even the mechanic is unsure as to what the problem can be.
When the car has the problem, the only way to get it to select 1st gear again is by continually turning the car on/off until first is selected again.
Sometimes this can take up to 20mins.
When trying to go into 1st gear you can hear the box trying but unable to engage gear. It's almost like a 'clunking' sound when this is happening.
Does anyone have any idea as to what it can be?
Is there something that my mechanic is missing?
