IIRC the gear selector is all on the gearbox mount.

There is a plastic which joins the left/right movement from the stick, and a steel bit for the up/back movement.


yeh the plastic clips onto to ball joint things

cant imagine the steel piece breaking

well relax then ud pick up a whole gearbox for that engine for about 40 quid and that would have the selctor on it.

the only thing i can think of that could have snapped down there would be a small plastic black piece and thats easy to fix.

i'm trying to remember wot it looked like on mine( it was a while since i changed my gearbox)

i could be corrected but i think the rest of it was made out steel although not 100% sure on that.

its in the engine bay and goes to the gearbox. You can see it if u look down the back of the engine. According to the bloke at the transmission place i have to buy a whole new linkage which could cost loads :boggle:

still not sure were exatly that is. if it is down on the gear box it could be a pain in the ass although there is a plastic piece down there that is quite easy to replace once ya can get yer hand into it.
