How can i put my car in nuetral 2001 volvo s40 if i dont have any keys

You can the remove cable from side of the transmission under the car that comes from the inside shift lever. Once the cable is removed you can move lever on the side of the transmission manually. If you are crawling under the car put blocks in front and back of all 4 tires. Have 2 people. As soon as you move the lever on the side of the transmission THE CAR WIIL ROLL make sure you have blocks on all 4 wheels.

How to remove the shifter in a 1992 ford explorer

you will have to remove the area around the shift lever inside the car to be able to get to the 4 bolts that hold the gear lever into the top of the box (turret bolts). Undo the bolts and lift the assembly off the top of the box . Stuff rags into the hole to prevent dirt from under the car getting into the top of the box

88 volvo 240 dl won't shift into 4th

This is common to the AW70 transmission when the rear bushing has been left very worn for a period of time. The rear shaft wear heavily on the main transmission housing causing the pressure not to build enough to engage the overdrive gear.

Hi there:
On 4-Speed Transmission (see Figure 1)

All terms used in the following procedure match those which are used in the accompanying illustration. No linkage adjustment is possible on the 5-speed transmissions.

Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
Place the shift control lever (F) in Neutral.
Raise the vehicle and support it safely with jackstands.
Remove the swivel retainers (P) from the levers (E, H, and J).
Remove the swivels (S) from the shifter assembly (G), and loosen the swivel locknuts (R and T).

Fig. 1: 4-speed shift linkage adjustments

Make sure that levers L, M, and N are in their Neutral positions (center detents).
Align the holes of levers E, H, and J with the notch in the shifter assembly (G). Insert an alignment gauge (J-33195) to hold the levers in this position.
Insert swivel S into lever E and install washer Q. Secure with retainer P.
Apply rearward pressure (Z) to lever N. Tighten locknuts R and T (at the same time) against swivel S to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
Repeat steps 8 and 9 for rod D and levers J and M.
Repeat steps 8 and 9 for rod K and levers H and L.
Remove the alignment gauge, lower the vehicle, and check the operation of the shifting mechanism.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helps.

I have a suZuki samari, and the four wheel drive is stuck in neatral. How do I fix it?

I'm assuming you know how the shift works.......sometimes it is a little difficult to position the lever correctly. Due to a possible problem with the plastic "cup" that supports the shift lever, you will need to remove the shift lever from the transfer case, and Use a big screw driver to move the mechanism to the neutral position. Many Samurai suppliers offer the kit to fix the shift

How do i take of the shift knob in volvo 240 automatic?

If you remove the top plastic cover, there should be a flange bolt which holds a spring connected to the shift lever. Be careful with the over-drive button so you don't rip out the wires during disassembly. Loosen that flange nut, remove the spring, and lift off the bottom half of the shift knob.

Now you can remove the two screws at the front of the plastic shift assembly cover to replace it with your new one. Reassembly is reverse procedure---take your time and don't force---the plastic is like those stupid map pockets that shatter when torqued!
