147 Stuck in 5th gear!
I have searched and read around about my problem...
My car for the last few months has been a bit hard to get out of 5th gear after you have been in it for a while but its been no big problem. It had a new gearbox at the start of last year.
Was on the way to pick up the Chinese take-away a few hours ago. I was in 5th gear and went to change down to 4th gear but couldn't get out of 5th. I pulled over and with a little more pressure than I would normally use I pulled it out of gear. It came out so I carried on.
On the way home the same thing happened so I pulled over but this time I couldn't get it to come out of 5th. Finally got the car home but its stuck in 5th gear.
The clutch pedal feels fine and the gearstick is in the middle as if it's in neutral. I can move it up down and left but I can't move it to the right.
Was going to pull the battery and tray, Clean with emery and cover in copper grease but is it worth it seeing as I can't get it out of 5th gear?
Any help would be good! Thanks, Ben
