selector is in the box, you may be able to get at it through the top if you pull the shifter boot off and all the s**t under the console out

had a look around forum for about an hour

it seems a lot of other have the same problem
checking the clutch cable and fire wall for cracks

does and body know what the pedal free play is
going to ajust the clutch today
and see if that helps

In the engine bay there is a tube with the clutch cable coming out. There is a nut at the end of the tube that is on threads. Adjusting that nut adjusts the pedal freeplay.
