The gear selection in my Fiesta has gone a bit funny. I put it in 2nd for example, and the lever springs back to the middle, as it would if it was in neutral. This happens for 1st, 2nd, 5th and reverse. It stays in gear, but it just makes changing gears a confusing experience.

Has anyone come across this before, or have any ideas where I should start in trying to fix it myself?

Mine is a 2004 Fiesta LX 1.4 petrol.

Thanks in advance,

Sadly not the answer you're looking for, but a question. If it's in second and you want to go to neutral to stop but it's already knocked itself out... how do you get into neutral?
