Looking for some mechanical advise. My car won't hold 3rd gear, slips out. Two slips out as well but not as bad. Others are fine. Is this a new gear box job or can iit be fixed? Also I can I getby for a while and totally ignore the problem? Prob not the smartest option but Need me car next weekend for electric picnic. Knowing my look the car wouldn't be fixed on time and I'd be screwed. any ideas on price? I get the feeling this will cost a fortune. Its a mini cooper if that's any help.

Get it checked out before you head anywhere, last thing you want is to be stranded somewhere.
Could be something simple like a worn selector cable or potentially it could be in the gearbox itself, worn selector fork, gear teeth etc, if it is the box, mOst of the time youd be as well off getting a reconditioned box off mr gearbox and the likes.

Impossible to know without seein it tbh, but definitely get it checked
