    Default Gear selector problems

    just had a reconditioned gear box fitted on my vectra (2002 1.8 Petrol)
    got it home ok from garage (about 10-15 miles)
    now it has an intermittent fault. When at a stand still it wont go into 1st 2nd or reverse. sometimes when slowing down at junctions, lights etc. it wont go into 1st or 2nd either.
    checked the gear cable linkage and it looks fine (but i probably wouldn't be able to tell what a fault is)
    goes into 3rd, 4th and 5th no problem.

    I'm taking the car back to gearbox garage on Tuesday but want to be educated about this fault and make sure it get's sorted.

    what should I be looking for. please help.

    sounds like a misallignment of the plate that guides the gear stick........or wear?????

    but if its just since the new gear box then it must just be misallinged.....me thinks....

    thanks guys,
    I was looking for some in depth ammo.
    I have a funny feeling this guy's going to fob me off with a cow boy fix.

    the gears did stick a bit when I left the garage and I took it straight back. to which he replied "because its a new box, It'll settle in and be fine"

    this after the 3-4 weeks it took him to do the job in the first place.

    totally lost faith in this guy.
