Yes I agree it is a replacement, I have another cable and that one is black.jimi wrote: ↑19/06/21 9:00 The red bush looks like a replacement, pretty sure oem ones are black.
I think one of the posts I linked to shows where the square bush is that wears and can be rotated. The cables could also need adjusted, I think there's a setup procedure in the BGB.
Have you changed the gearbox oil ? Failing all these it may well be worn syncro rings as TLF mentioned.
I was going to ask if the cables were adjustable, I’ll check that out as well. I might as well do everything I can, as fixing a fifth gear synchro is not going to happen unless I lose the gear altogether. At least not yet anyway.
