Question about Peugeot 307
My gear box is having problems going into certain gears. It feels like there is a piece of rubber stopping me putting it in gear . It goes from one extreme ie cant get it to go into 2nd or 4th to being as loose that i could blow it into gear. I took it to a garage and had long cables leading from the gear box to the engine replaced but problem was still there. I have taken it to another garage and was told that the clutch pedal has a spring on it that will be the problem so the mechanic removed it and i still cant get it in gear. Its intermittent and can work one minute and not the next.The cables cost mne 200 pounds as the mechanic said they had seized and were the problem. No one believes me and i have to pull into side of road as have no gears. Thank you.

Have a good look at the parts the selector cables actually attach to. The nylon washers surrounding the ball joints wear away leaving a loose feel to gear changing or complete loss of movement. The selector rods can fail too but I've found usually it's just the rubber or nylon washers wearing out leaving very loose movement, sometimes even jamming when the metal parts crunch together. Look under bonnet and get somebody to wiggle the gear stick as you look at where the cables attach to the selector rods and check for loose play at all the components.
Replacement Nylon washer kits are easy to get hold of.

I had this same problem with my 1998 SL2 after about 170,000 miles. There is a plastic bushing at the end of the shifter cable that holds the cable to the shifter - it probably broke. Remove the center console inside the car to access the bottom of the shifter. I checked my local Saturn dealer to find the replacement cables (come as a set) are more than $200. So I went to Lowes and bought a beam clamp and a large washer to hold the cable to the shifter. It has been working fine for more than 28,000 miles and cost less than $3

SOURCE: gear link or box problem
Sounds like a piece of linkage came loose. If it were an internal tranny problem, doubtful that the stick would be loose. Examine all linkage for something very obvious.
