I kept getting this after swapping gear sticks.
The easiest way I found was to do the rod up loosish and bolt the gear stick down finger tight and put it in 4th.
Then lift it up again, undo the rod and put the stick to 4th again. And tighten it up a bit.
Check you can get it into all the gears and nip it all up.
It took a couple of times for me but worked perfectly in the end.
