2016 Tucson 6th Gear
2016 Hyundai Tucson 1.6D

2016 Tuscon no longer changes into 6th Gear. Gear stick cannot move into 6th gear position. No previous problems, it just started overnight. When engage is switched off and clutch depressed, the shift stick will move into the 6th gear location, but not with the engine turned on.

Could check linkage on top of gearbox for any obstruction or try spraying with the likes of WD 40 . If not that , you will need to check the selector cables . linkage ,
Thanks for the advice. I'm no mechanic, so wouldn't attempt these things myself, but I am just trying to understand the scale/cost of the problem.......new clutch new gearbox or minor repair. ...before entrusting to the dealer for repair. I have now found if I release the clutch pedal slightly it will drop into 6th gear, so I am wondering is this a clutch problem
May well be the clutch but you would think it would affect all gears if so , not just 6th . Mentioned it to a friend on another Hyundai forum and there seem to be a lot of complaints with that 6th gear on Hyundai transmissions and different opinions to resolve it range from new gearbox needed , synchromesh hub , clutch needing replaced and others . Fingers crossed it's covered by your warranty .
