LT77 5th gear issue

Hi all, the issue I'm currently having is weird. 1-4 gears shift fine like they usually do, but when shifting to 5th, it goes back into 3rd. It's the exact same position that 5th has been in for since I could remember. Only had the issue after I did some mudding a couple weeks ago. Already checked the 5th gear stop and adjusted it but same issue. Like I said it goes exactly into 5th gear but it's 3rd, which is weird.

The screw connecting the rod with the bowl is tight?

The grub screw? It's pretty tight in, I'll double check it but I didn't mess with it

I would guess the selector fork for the 5th gear shaft has come loose. The whole box needs to come apart.
