Struggling To Get Out of Reverse Gear

Hi,

The gear box bearings on my 2005 Mini Cooper have just been replaced. Whether they needed replacing or not remains to be seen as the original noise is still there but either way I have been relieved of 580. Since getting the car back (for the second time) not only is the noise still there (fainter but still there all the same) but I am struggling to get the car out of reverse gear and all of the gears are alot stiffer. Is this something that will wear off or do you think there is some kind of problem? I am going to ring the garage on Monday but would just like some pointers before I do.

Thank you.

You shouldnt have to struggle with the gears so there maybe a linkage or adjustment problem, get them to check it out again for you, wouldnt mess with it yourself if they have just been working on it, or they might blame you and charge you again.

Thanks, I'm going to get back onto the garage first thing in the morning as things seem to be going from bad to worse. I looked under the bonnet this morning and all the coolant has disapeared. I have also discovered that the drivers side front tyre is wearing alot worse than the other side and it may have something to do with the original fault that is still present. This will now be the third time it has been in the garage! I wish i'd become a mechanic

Make sure its got plenty of coolant in it before you drive it back to the garage tomorrow, dont allow it to overheat!!
The car could have been kerbed or potholed badly at some stage contributing to the wear on the tyre?
