Missing 3rd gear

Sat Jul 25, 2020 9:43 pm

Hi all,
So today my wife went out in her x-trail everything was normal to start,
but when she pulled off from a roundabout going up through the gears 3rd started to judder, she dropped back to 2nd then went
back to 3rd but it just went as though it was neutral. She made it home bypassing 3rd. All other gears are working, I've just driven
up the road and the clutch feels normal, the gear lever travel is okay too.

I'm guessing something in the gearbox has let go so, weather permitting tomorrow Im thinking I'll unbolt the selector linkage on top
of the gearbox to see if theres anything in there loose.
My question is has anyone heard of this before or taken off the linkage just in case I make thing worse
The car is a 55 plate dci by the way
Cheers Mat
