    Default No 5th or 6th gear!

    Hi All,

    I finished replacing my clutch this weekend on the 306 gti6. All is working well so far except i can't get 5th and 6th gear anymore. I also don't have to pull up on the reverse lever to get reverse. It goes straight into reverse where 6th usually is. I only removed the linkages to remove the box then connected them back on as it was going back on.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    cheers,

    Engine and g'box mounts healthy? Bolts done up properly?

    Not knowing the exact background those would be the things I would check first. The same happens in various other cars when these mounts start to give in to wear or are not properly bolted on.

    The lower engine mount was cracked so i replaced it with a baker BM one while it was out. I'll check the gearbox mount now that it's back on the ground.

    Is it possible that I have hooked a linkage to the wrong part of the box. I'm not sure why I can get reverse without using the pull up lever?? Thanks

    Check the way you've re-attached the gear rods to the attached diagram.

    I've checked the way the linkages are hooked up and they look right to me. I think there's only 1 possible way they can go on due to their lengths.

    I'm now thinking it might be something to do with the reverse cable. It's like the collar on the shifter is stuck permanently up. Is there a special way the reverse cable has to be reinstalled?
