Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you.

If it is ok selecting other gears i would not think it is the clutch , fifth gear is on the back end of the gearbox and can

be worked on seperatly without removing gearbox.

If you get it checked then you will probably need to renew the 5th gear syncro hub assy.

Please keep me informed.
