I brought myself a 1996 Daihatsu Fourtrak TDX SE 2.8 three days ago, it drove very well on the test drive, and on the way back from the 4x4 centre. I have noticed now that I cannot come down into 2nd from 3rd. Thanks to your briliant community you seemed to have nailed the problem for me. Now I have a couple of questions:
1. My Dad is a farmer with a basic knowledge of mechanics will he be able to fix this? Will the gearbox need to be taken completely to pieces? Is there a step-by-step guide out there anywhere?
2. If not, how much money would you expect to shell out for it to be fixed professionally?
3. If this is ridicously expensive do you know if there is a statutory 3 month warranty that I have got from buying through trade?
Once again, thanks for having such an active and helpful community, I'll be a regular from now on i'd imagine anyway. See you around.
