2009 hyundai sonata stuck in gear

If there is no way in which the lever can come out even after you start and run the engine and engage the clutch, then it is a fault within the gear box as a possible gear must have jammed with a worn out selector. It will be necessary to remove the tansmission and check for fault if there is no jamming of the gear levers mechanically. Use extra leverage to try and move the gear linkage and if this seems too hard do not attempt.
You need to be equipped to remove and check this out or take consensus.

2ltr kia majentis/hyundai sonata both same engines/gearboxes,you may need the crankshaft from the engine to mate the manual flywheel.I would buy the whole transmision as you just take one out and drop one in.dont forget the electronics as the mapping system is different.
