    Default gear selection

    i have a 06 vectra on as a taxi, this morning i was just driving as normal then i don't know what happened to the gear lever, i am now finding it difficult to select 2nd gear, the lever wont spring back in to the central position & there feels like there is no resistance anymore , the lever feels a bit "floppy" now, if i pop it in, lets say 5th then flick it down to neutral it just comes across the box to the central position very slow, when i hit the gears right the others go in fine, it just seems as though the spring that moves it to the center of the box has stretched or something ( i know it hasn't , just feels like that if you understand) any help would be appreciated as i am now off the road for the night
