Hello, I'm new to this forum. I bought my dart (1.4 ralley manual trans) in June. When I first got the car I came out of a parking lot and the shift cables popped out of their retainer on top of the trans. I popped them back in and it was fine after that.
I took a trip to my hometown and when I got there I went to shift in to reverse and it didn't go in gear. The car was then only able to get into 3 gear. I limped it to my parents house where it stayed for a couple of weeks since I had to get back to work.
I replaced the shift cables and was able to use gears 3-6. I limped it again back to my house some 2 hours away.
I replaced the shifter assembly this morning and still do not have reverse, 1st or 2nd gear. When I try to put it in reverse it feels like I'm trying to push against a wall instead of into gear.
Any idea of what's wrong?
Many thanks, and apologies for the long post and if this has been covered before.

Replaced the shifter arm with the one from Deyeme racing today. The original arm with the bushing was rotten. I go to put the car in first and it puts it 3rd. Still no reverse or second. The only thing I can think of is that the shift fork is broken or skipped/slipped some how. Has anyone else had this problem? Car only has 63,000 miles on it.
