The 1300's MOT (more later.....!) necessitated a swap round of cars and taking the ie to Pudsey. Entering a fast bend I changed down to third.The gear was selected but the stick immediately went limp in my hand and no further gears could be found. After stopping for a think I was able to proceed to my destination in third gear, a great tribute to the torque and sheer grunt of the 2000ie engine.

It is possible to select gears at the gearbox end, and the linkage there makes a vague movement when the stick is moved, so some connection remains. Just seeing if anyone else has had a similar experience, and if so which part of the linkage had failed, or any thoughts?

I'll crawl under the car next weekend and see what I can see.

The hopeless weak cross link. Go through and re bush the whole linkage and use the HD Ideal Link Mark supplies in place of the weak cross link.

Hi Neil

You should be able to see it from above, albeit you will need a torch.

Agree with Eric, the original if you still have it will be well past it's sell by date.

This part?

I'm putting together a bit of a shopping list for Mark, so I can easily add this on.

Hi Neil

Yes that part plus a full set of new bushes and the replacement gearlinkballs if he still has them. Fixing the gear linkage will transform the drive of the car.

This will be why the gears are not selecting! Not the cross link. Total failure of a bush.
