hi to all
i finally have some news on my gearbox .
it was pulled down by my repairer today & found a $1.50 spring to be at fault.
it is part of a shift lockout safety device which stops you selecting reverse from 5th.
the spring is very weak & he suspects it would get worse with a bit of heat.
only problem, is that nissan doesnt have spring & will take aprrox 1 week on a vor order to come in.this is not too much of a problem as i have been without car for 3 weeks at previous repairer with no result.
i spoke to repairer about 5th gear & assures me it is ok.
thanks to all for your help & will let you know when car is on road.
thanks spudit

Interested t know how it goes when you get the spring. I had selector housings/hubs/syncros. Nissan finally agreed to replace my box last week. Ah feels like a new car again!

Hi Leroy,
Was your gearbox hard to select from 5th to 4th or was it another problem?

Another problem. It was jumping out of second gear all the time. I saw your intial post, hence my curiosity of what your prob could be.
