You will need to check the gear linkage hasits free movement and the gearbox mounting is secure. This happen on a Polo recently and the securing bolt to the gearbox mounting had fallen off leaving the gearbox hanging. I hope this helps you.

Regards

If the gearstick is comleatly loose and the problem was sudden then it has just come adriftt from the plastic ball joint that can be reached from inside the car by removing the gearnob and lifting the sock then push back together and all should be ok.
Happend to me in June 2009 done that and it hasnt happend since

2009 H3T 3.7L. Why is the stick loose as it's in gear?


OVER TIME THE STICK WEARS OUT, AND MAY BE WOBBLING. IT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO SELECT THE RIGHT GEAR.

I had a new clutch fitted 3 weeks ago now the gear stick has gone loose and I can only get 3rd and 4th gear?


check the pivot for the lever in the turret at the top of the box
3rd and 4th gear is the same selector rail so the end of the lever may be out of the selectors

2005 pt cruiser, stuck in 5th gear


Check the gear linkage cable (very common problem) look down inside engine bay towards top of bell case (thats where the linkage meets with selector arm. Get someone to wiggle the gear stick while you observe selector arm. (if you move the air box out of the way you can reach down and de-select the gear with your hand- should get you neutral at least)... I'll keep an eye out for any reply...

Peugeot 307 HDi gearbox sticking


Hi
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.
Good luck.

Gear lever loose & wont engage in 06 renault magane manual


Sounds to me that your cable is broke therefor not putting the car in gear. This can happen real easy. Have someone move the shifter for you and look at the side of your trans and see it the cable is moving. If not then you can do a visible inspection of it and see if it is broke.

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.
