Hey guys, the other day on the way to work i was cruising along in third and have gone to downshift and she was fairly stuck in 3rd gear ive had to come to almost a complete stop to get it out, all the other gears are shifting fine, it drives perfectly in 3rd as well its just a bugger to get out of third unless i completely lower the revs, its goes through all the gears including 3rd no dramas when the car is off, there hasnt been any weird noises or any pre warning. i changed the gearbox oil the other day which also didnt fix this issue, any ideas legends?

if you have been using down shifting to slow down you probably have damaged your 3rd gear , . use brakes to slow down ,match your revs with the gear you select,,

Sounds like the selectors are getting a bit poked.
I always engine brake (ex long haul trucker) as well as foot brake and I tow a lot with my work D40.
Rev matching is a must for both gearbox and clutch longevity.
@Ben_payne92 Do you tow often and if so is it a heavy load?
