i dropped in to the mechanics and he showed me something interesting.
he is putting a new clutch in a 205 gti and showed me why the customer was complaing if not being able to select gears properly apart from the worn clutch.
the bracket where the clutch cable adjustment end is had actually started to open up at the cylindrical housing that takes the adjustment mechanism.
this is usually a small cast tunnel attached to the end of a bracket but had cracked and was opening up more and more with use.
no wonder the cable wasnt doing its job properly.
ill post some pictures tommorrow to explain it better.
so if your having selection probs,check this mechenism.-BAZZ
