Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I have yet to hear of this in a VE.
Do you have a standard or aftermarket short shifter?
What does it do driving when you select 5th or 6th, noisy etc?
I would say it has a fractured 5th/6th shift fork.
Unlikely to be 5th/6th synchro hub, or anything else for that matter.
You need to get to a transmission shop asap.
I have only read about this today on the net.
I have not seen this myself personally.
It does seem to be a worldwide T56 6 speed thing. Wear and tear, and maybe some hard use.
I've been a mechanic since VB came out, old fart now.
I not would drive it until you get it looked at.
It will be a trans out for rebuild.
I hope you can get your trans sorted.
