SOURCE: 2001 VW Beetle with manual transmission will not

This may or may not be helpful. You have to physically push the stick down into the floor in order to access reverse. Then you can move it left and up. Straight down into the rubber boot first. It will pop up when you shift into a forward gear. Good luck

Sounds like a plastic grommet is broken. You'll have to raise the car and check the cables/linkage at each end. You'll probably find on one end that the grommet is missing. And you probably not be able to buy just the grommet. you will have to replace the entire cable.

Transmission slow to shift out of 1st gear when cold


Owners of a Toyota 4Runner might panic when the gearshift begins to have problems. Knowing a couple of the things that often go wrong in a 4Runner can help a driver diagnose or even repair the gearshift himself. Following are some of the more common shifting problems with 4Runners, and a bit of information on what to do next.
Shift Solenoids

  • One of the leading causes of gearshift issues in automatic 4Runners is a bad "shift solenoid." In automatics, shifts are controlled by shift solenoids, electrical coils that change gears automatically. These solenoids can go bad over time and cause stuttering between gears, or prevent shifting beyond a certain gear. Shift solenoids can be purchased and replaced on your own. By consulting the owner's manual, you can determine the location on the valve body of your vehicle and check shift solenoids for breakage or rupturing. Replacing these on your own isn't terribly difficult, as long as you are certain the shift solenoid is the problem. Tutorials are available in car repair manuals and sometimes are posted online.


Transfer Case
  • When a 4Runner begins to have shifting problems, the transmission is often fingered immediately as the culprit. A driver might change the transmission fluid and filter, only to find that the car slips into the same shifting problems. Four-wheel-drive vehicles utilize a transfer case that ensures shifting between two-wheel and four-wheel drive. If a vehicle has a difficult time shifting into two-wheel or four-wheel-drive high, but works on four-wheel-drive low, examine the transfer case. Common problems include linkage breaks and worn gears.


Shift Lever Seat
  • Sometimes, the gearshift on a manual simply doesn't feel right. The vehicle might come out of gear too easily or have a problem upshifting or downshifting. The shift lever seat is the well in which the stick shift rests. After years of use, pieces might break off, bend or rust, causing problems with gearshifts that don't stay where they should or have a hard time getting there. Fixing your shift lever seat is quite simple and takes about 45 minutes. Once the boot cover and plate cover have been removed, you need only examine, remove debris, grease up, and reassemble. Such a fix can cost serious time and money at a mechanic, so try it on your own if you have the time and the proper equipment. The proper equipment includes a screwdriver and/or wrench to remove the boot cover and plate, a soft cloth to remove dirt, and grease for lubricating the shift lever.


Good Luck.
