No 5th gear

Having read all the posts regarding this problem and have been through all the checks. The gears have stopped going into 5th. The cables are all secure.

I disconnected cable 4b and it went into 5th ,no problem. It seems that when cable 4b is pushed forward by moving the gearstick to the right, with cable 4b connected, 5th will not engage.




Any ideas welcome

Re: No 5th gear

Has anything fallen into the cup under the gear lever restricting the movement?

Is yours a wet or dry box?

Re: No 5th gear

It is an 899and I believe all 899 Seicentos have wet boxes.

I cannot see anything under the gear lever and I do not think there is anything there otherwise I don't think it would go into 5th when the cable 4b is disconnected. I think it maybe something to do with the cable

Re: No 5th gear

It seems a problem with the cable not wanting to move forward.
