    That's as much use as an ashtray on a motor bike.



    Probably popped off at the gear box end linkage, go into reverse link pops off and no other gears.

    Sorry guys for the late reply. Moving houses really stressful. Erm yes u guys were right... Some round thing came out of the little ball (sorry about my wording). So I just pushed it back in place and its all fine again. It fell off at reverse. I got it checked, the mechanic said its fine. So its still a mystery how it happened in the first place. Thanks guys, if it weren't for u I probably would have still been there :P
