    Hi chitty, it might be worth adding a note in the gear linkage adjustment procedure about the fact that with the locking pin on the gearbox, you don't just twist it, you really have to press the lever bit quite firmly in as well as turning it in order for it to locate properly, it took me about 6 tries before I figured that out lol but it does work, you need to sort of wiggle the linkage part at the same time and then you feel it suddenly go in and then you turn it fully 90 degrees and tada! sorted.:)

    I think it's shown in the video - you have to press down on the shifter linkage assembly and wiggling it in the down position, then you can rotate the pin.
