    the rod from the gear shift to the selector (part from the gear stick under the car to the ball and socket) might be on the wrong way....

    Don't know which car it is but if it's old rod type linkage then there is a 13mm nut on the rod that you can adjust it with.

    In the engine bay above the steering rack.

    If you've got play somewhere though you might find you can't get 5th once you adjust for Reverse/1st/2nd
