Hi everyone hope someone can help me. Driving back tonight and unable to select 4th gear. Feels as if complete block on shifting into 4th. Able to get all other gears no problem. Is it a selector problem or a gearbox one ? Has anyone else experienced this problem and is it a major one to fix ?
I have no experience of the GTV to draw on but I had a similar problem on a 33.
Now I know that a 33 is not a GTV but a gearbox is a gear box and all the internal bits are essentially the same.
I pulled away at a junction then could not select second, put it in 3rd where it remained stuck. That was it, no drama, no noise, just stuck in 3rd.
Limped home and removed the sump panel, loads of bits of metal fell out, I removed a bit of synchro ring from the selector rod, and had 1st, 3rd, 4th & 5th. to drive about with 'til a found a replacement box.
Yup, 2nd gear synchro ring had exploded.
Could be you have a similar problem, maybe not. Just a thought.
Not good news but it might help a little.
Hope you sort it
