Hi, I need some help with my 1996 Mitsubishi Lancer Asti R

Gearbox number F5M421Y8A5 UG5517

I can't access 5th or Reverse.

I had a problem previously and it was the bracket at the gearbox. I don't have the gear to weld so drilled the bracket and bolted it together. It's worked fine since.

Now a year later I can't get 5th or Reverse
- searched the forum and googled
I can do 1,2,3,4 and N. I can slide left to right in neutral I just can't get up or down to 5 or R. I'm not sure it's going right the way across in neutral.

- I removed the cables at the gearbox and I can do 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th - I can't move the lever fully across to neutral where it would need to do 5/6 although the lower arm seems to move fully into the gearbox. In this position I cannot move the lower lever left or right to access 5th or R. If I push a little harder on the top lever while pushing the bottom across I can get the upper lever to go further over and it seems like the lever slides into 5th partial in the box but it's not a smooth repeatable move.

So I assume this is not an adjustment issue. If I could access 5 & R at the box I would have adjusted the cables for centre at the gear stick.

Not knowing how the innards of the gearbox work I would have changed the oil for synthetic and see if that freed it up.
Outside of that what would stop it changing gears here.

And if it needs to go in for repair who do you all recommend in Auckland.
