Can't get 3rd gear

Hi all,

Had my 2001 Silver GTV for 12 months now, apart from the central locking being a bit iffy and sometimes I get a pool of water in the passenger side foot well oh and the nice key scratch somebody did all down the passenger side wing, my car is great, however Ive always had problems with 3rd gear jumping out until 2 days a go, now 3rd wont stay in at all, in fact Ive completely lost 3rd gear. Its going in to a garage on Friday when I can afford, but does this sound like a new gear box? and if so how much am I looking at roughly?

Pls help, Im xxxxxxxxx myself.

I think I'm right in saying that the box was fitted to a number of models so you may be able to get a second hand one.

Re: Can't get 3rd gear

This is a problem that gets worse the longer you leave it, get it to a specialist immediatly. Your gearbox will eventually die if you carry on driving it as it is, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it might already be beyond economical repair.
