Reverse first second fifth hard to get in

Post by 120Ddriver » Tue Feb 12, 2019 1:59 am

Hi all, since doing my clutch my gear stick isn't centralised & it's hard to select the top gears it's as if the gear stick hits the plastic surround.

I filmed the gear selector prior to removing & it's correctly fitted. The two that clip into the gearbox are basically supports.

Can this be caused by the support mount under the gearbox not being set far enough back? Or what can it be?

Thanks in advance.

Is your gearstick 180° out?
