2016 1.5d can't get 5th or 6th gear

Hi,

I had a search and can't see anything that matches, apologies if I missed something.

The problem is that it's not possible to get 5th or 6th gear. The gear stick will not move to the right beyond 3rd & 4th. I'm guessing it's a linkage problem but don't know where to start looking.
Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks

I'd check for nothing caught or jammed on the gear linkages in the engine bay, then look for anything broken on them.

If you are lucky then it wont be in the gearbox.

Seems that the problem has solved itself, at least for now. I'll take a look underneath when it's a bit warmer.
