No reverse or 5th gear

Recommended Posts

Hi all , newbie here and trying to resolve a problem on  a family members 2009 mk2 Ka 1.25.

Sp basically she has been struggling to get it into reverse and finally its refusing to  go into reverse and 5th gear, Had a look at the selector cables and noticed the adjustable cable at the gear lever was seized solid , replaced them and adjusted it as per the haynes manual but still get reverse or 5th, placed about with the setting but still nothing ,

Im assuming its something to do with the box now as read on the internet it could be the selector arm ? 

Cant get it into gear with engine running or not and clutch bite feels good, no clutch slippage.

Anyone got any tips or even a gearbox break down diagram ? or the type of box is it?

 

thanks in advance

Hi 

Did you get to the bottom of this. I think we have a similar problem. Gear stick needs extra pressure on the lift up and down to get into reverse. If changing from 5th down, the gear stick like in other gears doesnt return to the kind off neutral point without an extra pull to the left and down extra. Not massive force but cant see whats worn out etc, without dismantling.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I'd have guessed at a worn bush or something I  the gear linkages.
