On the way home from work, just pulling into on coming traffic and accelerated hard in 1st then changed up to 2nd and there was no drive and a floppy gearstick. :eek:

Just managed to pull onto the thankfully very wide pavement.
Called the AA and local dealership telling them we were on our way!

Whilst waiting for Mr AA, had a poke around under the bonnet, thinking I wouldn't see too much but after a quick fiddle found the gear selector rod had popped off the selector at the gearbox end. Snapped it back on and hey presto, full gears again!!:D

Has anybody else had this happen to them?

You're lucky...

I had it happen but the cam belt slipped teeth and ****ed up my engine indefinately.

They reseated it, corrected the skipped teeth but it's never been right since. But meh. :bang:

Only consilation is - my Gearstick is hard as. :slayer:
