Help guys please....car wont go into reverse!
Long story. Bought a car for the g/fs brother - a 147 1.6.
The car was in garage getting a couple of bits done.
They fitted a new "gear selector" piece to make the gearbox seem less stiff.
The missus mum was out in car earlier driving around and tried to select reverse.
She heard a ping and now unable to select reverse at all.
All other gears are selecting OK but the gears seems to be very loose...described as "having a foot space between each gear"- seem to be difficult to know what gear your in.
No whines apparently from gearbox either.
Is there a chance the gear selector plate has fallen out of position or worse.......
Really hope its not worse as im gonna get the blame from the missus mum!
Thans in advance
