Problems putting car into 5th Gear

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Problems putting car into 5th Gear

Hi.

I have an L reg Vauxhall Corsa 1.5 LS TD. I havent been able to get the car in 5th gear for ages - didn't bother me at first as i was only using the car to learn in - now i've passed i'd like to drive for further and longer so would prefer to have 5th working. Has this happened to anyone else or anyone have ideas?

Thanks,

J

You could have burned up a synchro, broken a shift fork, or it could just be the linkage. What were the circumstances surrounding it no longer going into 5th?

to be honest nothing really happened - just one day it wouldnt go in. Now when i move into 2nd gear its getting more and more difficult - also wont let me into first until the car is almost stopped still.
