Hi thanks for reply approx 122k i found out yesterday and despite me testing the slave cylinder and it had no leaks it was this that the garage changed not the master cylinder in my first post, i knew it was not the slave cylinder as it looked fairly new so has been done, does this model have gear linkage cables??? and if so where abouts are they?? she did say sometimes its hard to get it out of a gear when its hard to get into gear, problem is going from 1st -2nd and 2nd-3rd but it is intermitent!! if it was a syncro it would do it all the time surely?and same with clutch plate, so am on lines of thinking master cylinder or something to do with gear stick or Oil not sure, would really like to solve this so if anyone has experienced this and solved please help with what you did, its a lovely car despite this and i know she will just scrap it if it cant be solved a waste of a good car with history paul

It's probably a synchromesh issue on the gear box, older boxes suffered with this issue, especially with that amount of miles, most likely inner city miles so on the gearbox a lot

thanks for reply i agree with you!! but would if it was the syncromesh affect the gear changes all the time?? as this is intermitant and can be fine for a couple of days then do it again and so on and is this a gearbox overhaul? paul
