    Default Vectra C Sticking Gear Shift

    Separated by a month and 1,500 miles I have experienced problems with my manual gear shift. On trying to change down, I found that after disangageing, the shift lever can't then be put into ANY gear at all and I had to just roll to a stop in neutral. After stopping, switching off the engine and then re-starting the problem was cleared both times, and the gear shift returned to normal. Concerned that this might happen in fast lane on a motorway so any ideas as to the cause will be most appreciated. After first incident my local garage had a look but could find nothing wrong as it was by then working OK. Car is a 1.8 Sxi five door, registerd December 2003.

    Thank you in anticipation of some suggestions as to the cause.

    Clutch was changed only last year and gearbox seems to work perfectly OK. Is there any way to check and confirm that the gear selector is worn ? If it is the selector, then why would the problem be completely cleared by just stopping and re-starting the engine ?
