You've got 020 though dude  :undecided:

Just found this in the corrado forum too.

As regards the gear selection problem, first port of call is the cable end to gear box attachment. It's poor engineering design as the nut is only tightened to 10 ft lb and has no lock nut or other retainer mechanism. It can work loose as consequence.

Need two peeps, get someone to move the gear stick across the gear gates from 5th to reverse ie. the neutral right to left movement, without engaging any gears. On the gearbox you will see only one cable move the gearbox controls. The cable throws the lever back and forth over a short arc. Put the gear stick fully over to the reverse gate but not forward into the reverse gear position. While it is held there, see if the cable end/gearbox lever control will go further towards the that end of travel. If it does, then the cable end fitting has slipped. A crude way to adjust the cable end/gearbox lever control is to slacken the nut slightly. Hold the cable end and push the lever so that the end travel coincides with the gear stick's full travel across the gate at either end of the across left/right neutral throw. At the extreme ends of the cable movement, there is hardly any play and if there is it should be a balanced at each end of the cable's travel. When happy with the set-up, nip the nut upto 10 ft lb, Any more and damage may occur to the plastic end fitting on the gearchange cable. May be worth taking the nut off and putting some "lock-thread"on the threads of the cable attachment.

If this is not it, then there is a problem inside the gearbox.
