Hi I'm Kevin you need to take car back and have gearlinkage readjusted . They obviously haven't correctly adjusted it after refitting gearbox when clutch was fitted . This will solve issue

You shouldn't really have had to pay for them if I wasn't like that before they were obviously damaged when clutch was fitted they have to be removed to fit clutch

Ok thanks for your help. I've contacted them again and they said there really busy doing other things so they don't need to do it.
