Hello and thanks for this great website.
The button which is located on the gear lever has popped out and as I tried to re insert it in the hole the gear lever moved position. I placed my finger in the hole and released the lever back to position ''N'' and was able to re insert the button again. Now if I try to change the gear I have to force it and the light trhat illuminates the gear position letters, won't go on any more.
Could you kindly help me by telling me what part I should purchase for this? Is it right to purchase a ''BECK ARNLEY CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER ''?

Many thanks in advance.
