It sounds like you might need some transmission fluid or you might need a transmission fluid change. In the worst case senario you will need a code reader to ***** the situation. Also was this car from America or was it from Europe because there is a difference in transmission capabilities.

How do i manually unlock gear shifter


If you cannot shift out of PARK (P), ease the pressure on the shift lever. Push the shift lever all the way into PARK (P) as you maintain brake application. Then move the shift lever into the gear you want. If you are still having a problem shifting, then have your vehicle serviced soon.

Sometimes the R gear in my gear box dosen t work in my bmw ci 323 model 2000


hi. is this a manul shift trans?? if yes, then it is an easy fix. really it is. remove shifter knob and boot to gain access to the shifter assembly, you should be looking at the top of the transmission, remove 3 to 4 bolts holding the shifter in. slowly lift the shifter out of the trans, there should be a plastic "bushing" between the shfter and the shifting rod, its probably destoryed thats why reverse is hard to get, it adds more "throw" moving the shift rod of the trans more forward and firmly into gear.

Shifter broken


Ok shifty, did u look at the piece that came off carefully, I would think there is a small set screw that is supposed to hold it in place. It probably loosened up, allowing u to rip it off with your wild shifting technique. So look also where it came off, to see if u can spot a point where something was holding the 2 together. I think it's just a matter of tightening a loose set screw. Check the floor and between seats for a very small set screw, although it probably is stll in the handle that popped off.
