Hi..there.. How do you mean no all gears? Can you select any gears at all when the engines running or only when its switched off? Before all this was done..was the clutch fine as far as you could tell? and could you select other gears ok bar 2nd? And what was the problem getting 2nd - no drive or gearstick binding up or jamming? Has the garage shown you the faulty parts thats needed replaced?
