  1. Bit of background, bought the car on 51K miles in 2016, predominately been used for motorway driving, just clocked over 100K miles last week, then 3 days ago as I’m driving along in 6th gear on a national speed limit road, it starts slipping, took it down to 5th still slipping but not slipping as much, managed to get it home in 3rd at low speed, limited slipping in 3rd gear. By the time I made the 4 mile journey home both 5th & 6th gear were completely gone and just revving when in them. But no major noises, crunching, clunking nothing. So I came to the conclusion it needs a new clutch, fair wear & tear, just hit over 100K miles, I thought annoying, but fair play. Booked in the local garage (one I could just about drive it to 2 miles down the road from my house). They’ve fitted a new clutch, phone me up and say “All done ready to go, we just need payment. Oh and btw 6th gear isn’t working, but other than that it’s all good”. They think it’s a gear box issue, but I can’t understand how it was working absolutely fine last week, no noises, clunks nothing and had given no signs whatsoever of any gearbox issues. 6th gear was a dream. Now the new clutch is fitted and now all of a sudden 6th gear doesn’t engage at all and it just revs… I’m hoping it’s just linkage, not put back in the right place. Easily rectified by a mechanic who knows their way around these cars… The car is 18yrs old, over 100K miles, had I known there was a gear box issue or 6th gear would be completely gone I definitely wouldn’t have got the clutch done and would have probably sold it. I now find myself in a bit of a tricky situation! Obviously I want to pay the garage for their time & parts for fitting the new clutch, no dramas. But I feel a bit robbed because the car is 99% useless to me without 6th gear, as 99% of my driving is motorways commuting for work or driving to see distant friends & family. Is there anyway they could have caused this whilst fitting / testing the clutch ? Or is it just a freak situation that gearbox 6th gear has gone whilst in their possession ? Or is it more than likely the linkage ? It’s been left that the mechanic has said he will have another look at it to see what’s the problem, and if it is gear box he’ll come back with gear box prices… (but my gut is he’s already tried everything and just can’t work it out). Obviously given the age & mileage of the car, I will very unlikely be forking out even more money in the thousands for a new gear box… Any advice / insights welcome, I’d be grateful for any input and if you know of any 350z specialists in Hampshire that I could take it to, please do recommend! I’m hoping to square up with this local garage, then take it to a specialist to (hopefully) just sort the linkage out and get 6th gear sorted. Many thanks, Stephanie
