Re: T5 Transmission Troubles
from what your saying its got nothing to do with the gears, its those selector shafts the move up and down which allows you to select 5th and reverse. from memory when i opened up a transaxle gearbox, obviously 5th is above reverse in the selector gate part. now it could be the selector, the shaft, or those little ball bearings inside the shaft that dosent allow you to select more than one gear at once and locks them into place.
hope that can help. im only just learning about manual transmission.
