That could be a clue.

If something serious hasn't happened on the gear mainshaft,
it could be a shifter/linkage problem.
I'm not an expert on these boxes, but they have had troubles
with the "side-shifting" linkage.

in particular, Diagram #10 and #15.

Haynes has a good description of that box too.

Unfortunately, there is not very much that can be done unless
the box is removed from the Van.

quite a common fault on aircooled t25 boxes is for the 3rd/4th gear hub to disintegrate - causing the box to lock in gear
My 2.0 ac box lost 4th with a similar graunch - the mainshaft bearing had come loose in the case :(
