morning everyone.

driving to work this morning car was fine as usual. got a mile from my house towards my place of work and the gears started seeming a bit floppy. ignored it as i have been meaning to replace the plastic rod with a metal one, however a bit further down i could not get it in gear at all. In the middle of a busy dual carriage way... I managed to coast it down to another street and had a look, the rod looks fine and is secure on the ball joints but the linkage itself is very loose and you can move it around! I managed to have a play with it, and now it goes in every gear but it is extremely floppy and hard to tell whether it is in gear properly or not until you lift the clutch pedal. See vids of sloppy gear stick and linkage itself.

So i am almost certain the full linkage with new metal bar needs to be replaced. Although i have done loads of jobs on this car, i don't know how confident i would be doing this. is there anyone in/around leeds that would be able to give me a hand or do the job labour paid? along with my full time job I am a part time carer so rely on the car heavily.

thanks in advance

Videos don't want to work for me, I would try YouTube, but does look like your missing bushing.
