    I fitted a new clutch last weekend in my 1990 90 with 200tdi engine and lt77, bled the system and set up the clutch pedal height, all seemed well but I have trouble engaging 3rd and 5th gear, we have bled it again and no air in system and I changed the gearbox and transfer box oils and I altered the bias spring and it slides in and out of gears ok with engine off, could it just be coincidence and my gearbox is knackered, I have had the 90 around 3 years and the box has always been a bit noisy, is there anything else I could check before going down the new box route, any help appreciated I not sure what else I could check.

    Update was racking my brains and searching through posts on here and read about checking the yoke under the gearstick to make sure grub screw was in tight, anyway when I took the cover off I found I must of dropped 1 of the large self tapping screws from the tunnel cover and it was jamming underneath the yoke/cup, removed screw took for a drive , perfect now.
