I have the 4-speed transmission, and it will not go into the 3rd gear, it's as if it does not exist.

The transmission works PERFECTLY when in gear, but sometimes, even has trouble popping out of gear, and then finding the gear can be difficult sometimes.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello!

There are three bars between the gearbox and the shifter. One is for 1-2nd gear, one is for 3-4th gear and the last one (i think that lever on the gearbox is pointing down) is for the reverse. Have one to operate the shifter while you are under the car and look what movement the bars make. Then adjust the one thats moving to go a bit further at 3rd gear. I don´t remember if those bars have any threded adjustment, otherwise you could remove the lever and turn it one or two splines in the proper direction.

Good luck! / Anders
