Default XC60 5th gear vibration

Hi, I have an 2012 (90k mi) XC60 D3 DRIVe with a manual gear box. Bought it in January 2018 and it runs wonderfully. Apart from one niggle. 5th gear. Every other gear runs well apart from 5th. When selected, it gives a little vibration through the gear stick when foot is pressing the accelerator.. Performance doesn’t seem to be impacted but it’s just annoying. Sometimes it doesn’t do it, but 75% of the time it does. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem might be? Is it a common fault? Many thanks. John

Interesting. Maybe a common fault then. Any idea of the cause and how much it might cost?

it depends what the cause is , can be just the cables or also the selector mechanism which come out the top of the gearbox all in one piece.

Hi guys there's is a cure for this and it's nothing to with cables there's is a tj for rattling vibration noise and you need to change parts inside gear box sounds dramatic but it's straight forward
Remove air filter box disconnect cables remove pin for lever undo 4 bolts and lift plate out then refit new parts and reassemble

It can indeed be the cables if the vibration is in 3rd 4th and 5th !

If the noise is only in 5th and the new modified gear selector mechanism does not work there is a modified bush on the cables .
