    I'm sure this probably won't help at all. But I was having a similar problem with my old Punto, I put it in reverse and it got stuck, then it popped out and everything felt a bit 'squishy' wouldn't go into 1st or 2nd gear.

    Off to the garage it went and they found a screwdriver wedged in the transmission, with teethmarks all down the handle. Was more than a little bit shocked to say the least.

    Problem went away after that. But I'd imagine that's not what you're experiencing, might be worth having a look, make sure there's nothing stuck though?

    This was quite common in the previous model Corsa and Vectra B
    Caused by the linkage ceasing
    It is normally covered by OE or Network Q warranty
    If yours has expired, its about £30 for parts and an hours labour
