It's obviously out of Honda warranty now, but do you think it's something the garage I bought it from could sort out? Any idea of rough costs to sort out at a local garage?

I dunno if your local garage could sort it out pal, I'm good but I ain't THAT good :p

Civinfo has a top secret section that's packed with info Type R 3rd gear problem - Civinfo Wiki

Approx costs can be found in here (also other threads) http://www.civinfo.com/forum/type-r/7043-3rd-gear-18.html

Good luck.

Thanks Farqui. I imagine I'll get it sorted sooner than later. Look like a complete noob when I can't get it in gear at the moment!

Gearboxes are a black art to me and something I leave to the specialists.

If I attempted owt with gear, then 'm sure I'd have springs and cogs embedded in the garage walls!

What the spanners at Grinspeed can do with'em blows me away. Not exactly local to you but might be worth a call...

Looking lovely mate - best colour and love the black wheels (although I may be slightly bias).

Just need some black skullcaps now to finish it off :cool:

Thanks mate. I agree about milano and searched specifically for red.

Thinking about getting some red Alloygators soon. For both cosmetic and practical reasons. The car seems very big in some of the multistory car parks round here!

i do believe changing the gearbox oil can help alot in curing the 3rd gear issue....its worth a try , if not then it looks like you'll need to beg honda to sort it under warranty...or at least get them to contribute something.

Welcome mate and sweet looking fn2! I too had the 3rd gear synchro problem (also had it on 2nd gear too, so 1st to 2nd was a pain!!) My dealership contacted Honda and they agreed to fix it. Much better now! Mines is a 2008 model. Might be worth going to the garage you got it from. Was it a honda dealership?

No it was a small local garage. I'll try replacing the oil as davidc suggested.
