Try a local salvage yard .. they do not inventory shift linkages... but they will sell them if you ask for them.

1st and 2nd gear won't catch in my manual 96


it is very likely this is being cuased by worn shift linkage and not the transmission itself, check the shift rods and bushings for being excessively loose, also any trans repair shop will do a test drive and give you a free diagnosis in hope of getting the work, things are tight right now. please rate this.

I own a 2003 Mazda MPV. I have owed the van for 2 years when first purchased after a few months I started to notice a faint noise from the back of the car when I when shift from 1-2 gear. Well I brought it...


Most transmission shifter ( where you shift) has a linkage control to shift gears in the transmission. Those joints from the linkage have bushings made of rubber. Once these rubbers were worn down and torn, the noise from metal friction from linkage can give you that intermittent noise. When the gap from the linkage joint enlarges in lieu of the bushing space, it causing the engagement of shifting is off from original position that was why you are experiencing "binding in other gears"
Have a different shop to check out these linkage control bushings and replace them. The bushings are cheap and it probably takes about 2 hours the most to replace them. This will save you a lot of money on spending on unnecessary repair. Good Luck.

This is a 1987 325i convertible, with a manual 5 speed. The problem is, that it pops out of first gear, when starting at a dead stop. It will stay in gear, if it is moving at all. So you can start in...


Generally when you have a problem with your car 'popping' out of a gear, it the shifter linkage. Shift linkage has a lot to do with the transmission. I recommend going to a shop you trust and asking them to check the shift linkage and adjust if needed. If that doesn't fix it, its your tranny and that will be expensive.

Can't shift in to first gear only. All other gears are fine.


this is a common issue with the o2j/o2m transmissions. due to miss shifts or loose linkage.


the easiest fix for this is to shift from reverse to 2nd over and over. then try to force it into first gear. it will be very difficult sometimes to do but it will go. once you get it in first it will be very hard to move, but you will just have to keep shifting from first to second over and over and it will begin to loosen up. make sure you are doing this with the engine off.

the second way to do this if the first fails is to have the shift linkage adjusted.

Shifter stuck in second gear


Your shift linkage has come undone. Jack the car up and climb underneath. You shift linkage is either com undone from the trans or you shift stabelize bad has come undone at the shift arm.

Cannot engage transmission from first to second gear


Usually this is a linkage problem, and most often the rubber lined coupling between two rods in the linkage system. This fails as the rubber ages, and when it does you are unable to select some or all gears, and might be stuck in one gear!

Not too difficult to re and re, and part is available from Saab dealer at reasonable cost.

Coupling may be located inside the car, under the console, ahead of the gear lever housing, or on the other side of the firewall
