156 Keeps jumping out of third gear
The 156 developed a problem with third gear yesterday. The problem came on very rapidly on the way home from work the car slipped out of third as i exited a round about slipped it back in and it was fine for the next ten miles or so home. Went out later and it started to do it agane but now very violently. Even if you hold the gearlever firmly forward it drives cleanly then will suddenly kick out.
I'm assuming its a problem with the synchro on third. Although there has been absolutley no issues with it prior to this always changed perfectly and not even a hint of anything wrong.
Is it possible somthing has come a drift/loose in the gearbox? If it was just straight forward ware on the synchro wouldn't the onset of the problem be more gradual?
