Hey guys.Hope you well.Well baby's broken again and really would appriciate any help,over being ripped off by so called mechanics.Well my sele been broken for a couple of months now,Initially it was just the fact that when I tried to select gears it would just rock back and forward.Now I have engine fauilure,camshaft sensor fauilure.fml.Well I thought it might be the clutch rod length which is why I couldent select gears when the car was idling.So tried to set that and best I can do Is 24.9 mm then the bolt comes out.Even when I try and select gears after the clutch rod length drops do 16-18 mm anyways...

Please I really want to try and fix the car myself this time,But really just dont know where to start.
Ive uploaded some videos to youtube.Please take a peek and let me know what you think.

Regards. Sheldon

SO im assuming the clutch arm is the reason I cant set the clutch rod length and why the car just rocks when I try to engage gear?
