I'm unfamilar with the exact car but it sounds like part of your gear selection linkage is broken. This would be the part that is used to select the gears you can't select. I have seen some cars that use two cables, one for 1st and 2nd gear and the second for 3rd and 4th gear. I have also seen cars that use metal rods from the shifter to the transmission much like the cable setup, one rod for 1st and 2nd gear and the other rod for 3th and 4th gear.

Hope this in some way helps.

My vehicle will not move when I put it in gear


Are you sure that your gears are actually engaging. Do you feel resistance (however slight) when you select a gear including reverse gear. If it is a manual gearbox, then either the gears are not actually being selected and that could be something like a broken linkage or the clutch is not releasing when you let your foot off the pedal. The clutch problem could be rectified by adjusting the cable, if fitted, or the actuating mechanism is stuck in and not releasing the clutch. Does the pedal feel soft or in an unusual position.
It will be a dirty job to find and rectify the problem so may well be best left to a mechanic.

Help im having problems selecting 1st and 2nd gear and the gear stick is very lose on my 99 206 any ideas?


there is a central plastic ball fitted to your gear stick. Open the leather cover and check every single ball (i.e one in center, 2 on the side and locking balls of gear wires). May be you need to remove the whole central console to have a look at your gear stick main frame. Its not complicated but time consuming. It better to take it out and check it completely rather than having the same problem again. The problem with gear shifting could be on gearbox side as you only mentioned the 1st and 2nd gear. But sort this thing out then you'll know better. If you need any help then pls inform.
