    Default Manual 360 gear shift issue (3rd gear crunch)

    Hi,
    I am new to the forum and I have read up as much as I can but I can't see anyone with the same problem as me.

    I have a Manual 360 and have recently had a new clutch fitted. When I drive the car feels great but I can't get into 3rd gear. No matter what I do:

    (2nd-3rd change)
    (4th-3rd change)
    (2nd-Neutral-3rd change)
    (4th-Neutral-3rd change)

    When the car is parked I can get it into 3rd.

    The gear shifter surround hasn't been removed so I dont think it is an issue with alignment of that, any other suggestions? When the car went to the garage it didn't have any issues with going into gear.

    Thanks a lot
    Luke

    Broken 3rd gear synchro ring would be my guess.

    Surly there would be a sign of the synchro failing?

    Well it's gear specific (3rd). Only a problem with the car moving. And not related to the gear shift linkage (another common problem) as you can engage 3rd easily enough while stationary.

    I hope someone else has a better suggestion otherwise the gearbox internals might need inspecting.

    I haven't rang him yet as I'm sure he doesn't want people calling him for advice. I will try and get to the bottom of it a bit more first.

    Is this classed as excess play in the shifter or is this normal?
