I have a 2003 Mini Cooper S ( R53 ) six speed manual that won't go into gear. Checked the linkage cables , they seem O.K. moving the the shifter at the transmission . Clutch slave movement is O.K. Feels like the car is in gear but I do not have the front wheels moving. Checked T.S.B.'s nothing found. Seems to be an internal problem . I'm leaning towards a new/reman trnasmission at this time. Anyone got any ideas ?
