Manual Gearbox only reverse gear and 5th?. Unable to drive

Post by Joelene » Wed Dec 19, 2018 7:34 am

Hi, this morning suddenly my manual Gearbox only has reverse gear and 5th. I have never had a problem. It just won't go into any other gear. Baffled and stranded. Please assist. Clutch fine

Hi Joelene,

You could open up the bonnet & take a look where the gear change leaver mechanism enters the gearbox & look for obstructions. If your mechanically minded you could try disconnect the gear input linkage & identify if its the gear selector or the gear box at fault.

Other than that, you will probably have to take it to the garage.

Thank you Daewar, changing the high heels for safety boots. Will let you know if I managed to find the fault.

Hi Joelene. Did you find the cause of the problem? I have currently similar issue on my QQs qearbox. Except in my case first, fourth and a fifth gears work. No reverse or neutral. The 1st gear is in where neutral used to be 🙄 I did take QQ to one garage and they said the problem is not broken transmission wire. Nothing else they couldn’t be sure of. So, I wonder did your gearbox problem ever solved? I hope it did 👍 Could you update it here?
