    Unhappy 6th Gear will not select

    Hi All

    My 2006 1.9 tid cabrolet as recently decided not to select 6th gear first time.

    Gentle increase speed all gears select OK until changing from 5th to 6th it feels like something just stops the gears lever moving into 6th gear. I have noticed if I press clutch come from 5th to neutral release clutch press clutch it will go into 6th gear

    I have checked the selector tower and all is nice and free, with the selector cables removed you can select each gear no problem at all. Install selector cables go for a drive same again all gears ok except 6th!!!

    It just feels like there is something stopping the gear lever moving into 6th position

    With the cables removed from the tower the gear leaver feels OK??

    Any idea greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Hello wackyracers, strange one , because it's normally 1st,2nd,3rd , and vagueness of the neutral position that those suffer from ,
    have you at any stage changed the gearbox oil ?
    Always try changing that if not done already .
    think the spec is 75-w80 GL4 2.2 litres when re-filled
    some use redline MTL .
    Only other thing is check cable adjustments
