There is one of 2 problems that will give this indication. The first is the gear lever end in the shift rail has moved out of the slot and is behind the slot and not moving it . This can be checked by removing the lever mount from the top of the box and physically moving the shift rail back into the neutral position then replacing the gear lever back into the selector gate and moving the rail again.. The second possible fault is that the selector fork has come loose on the rail and is not moving the gear (just sliding on the rail) If that is the case the box will have to come out unless you can see the selector fork and the lock screws from the top of the box when the lever mount is removed.. If you can move the selector rod forward and tightening up the lock screw then pulling it back to neutral. Repeat until the fork is back in neutral position and lock it up. Most lock screws have a hole and there is wire tied around the shaft to prevent the screw coming loose. If the box has been reconditioned at some time then it is possible that the person doing the job neglected the wire bit.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the answer, you were spot on. I followed gear linkage down and found it had come off. I had gearbox reconditioned a while back and they must have forgotten to put the locking plate on. all sorted now and no more problems with the gears. Thanks again"

The driver side power seat button moves forward and backward and reclines, but wont move up or down, the seat is stuck all the way down so i cant get to the wrom gear underneath, how do i go about raising...


I am working on a replacement motor that will come with a new gear/shaft on it. I have one of my setups in the car right now and have the parts for another one ordered. I hope to make a video of the repair in a couple weeks when the parts show up. Still uses plastic gears, but these are larger, more durable gears and the swap is fairly straight forward with just a few modifications.

It seems like we broke our Gearbox, the gearstick will just move up and down, not sideways. The car's stuck on 1st Gear.


Maybe, maybe not, lift the gearstick boot, look in press the cluts & try 2 move the stick (don't start engine), or behind the gear box check the levers, if is not, then.... your box needs 2 open.

2001 Hyundai Tiburon will not go in reverse, but drives fine otherwise.


Hi There,

As demonstrated in the test drive of the vehicle, the Tiburons gearstick has a little groove just passed the crown. Starting in nuetral - lift groove up and put it into the reverse position (where gear 6 is normally) by doing this lift you take the gear box to a second level. to move out of reverse simply take the gearstick and return it to nuetral then into first gear, you are now able to drive forward.

Hope this helps,

Cheers Buckaroo,
Chris.

Bushes missing from gear stick and transfer stick


If it's a later model (post 98), then I have an idea what's happened. On the rounded ball end of the gear stick that goes in the box, there is meant to be a plastic bush that is only a very loose fit on the end of the stick. If it has dropped while either removing or replacing the gearstick, and fallen into the area at the back of where the gearstick actuates the shift rail, then apart from having a very sloppy gearstick, you won't be able to move the shift rail backwards - which is what happens when you move the gearstick forward (1st,3rd,5th). This should be fixable from in the cab. Of course, if you have an earlier model, none of the above applies, as you have the gearstick moving only one of a choice of three shift rails with no bush in that area. The only thing that happens to those is the spring on the gearstick breaks (that can't be replaced on its own!)

Hallo


Sounds like the park-neutral-park switch needs replaced. Try moving the gearstick forwards and backwards quickly all the way 5 times and see if that helps. If it does, you need the a new PNP switch.
