Hi,
Yes, I have a similar problem, only it appears to be ; reverse, 1st,3rd and 5th gears that either grate or just refuse to engage, did you get any replies/clues?

Thank you both for the replies.
Yesterday after getting the car back from our local garage, with "It's an intermittent fault, can't make it do it". I thought this morning I'd have a look. Get the wife to work the gear lever, remove the air cleaner to see the linkage working and lo', wedged beween the two cables that move the selectors is a plastic backed glass from somebody's rear view mirror! A previous MECHANIC has left his spyglass in the gear change linkage!! been there for some time judging by the rub marks!!! Time, of course, will tell, but I'm betting my boots that that was the problem. But as well as that there is much oil on the top and bottom of the gearbox, I'll give it back to the garage for that one. Thanks again for your efforts.
