You got it, bent shift fork. I think the manufacturers make them weak just to keep dealer service
departments in business. This is a pretty major repair.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

Shifter is in neutral. Why is manual transmission stuck in 3rd gear?


Internal transmission breakage has stuck the thing in 3rd gear. Stalls when putting in other gears because transmission is then being put into 2 gears at once. Better look into getting another transmission of having the current unit overhauled and repaired.

My Audi A6 is stuck in neutral and will not budge I can start the car and everything works it just will not come out of neutral


When you say it is stuck in neutral what is stuck? is the shiftter stuck in the neutral postion or is the car not moving when shifter is placed in drive or other gears,
if the car doesnt move in gear i would say it is transmission releated, this may be a bad tranny or fluid is very low.

check your transmission oil, make sure it is full. this is were i would start,

If you tow your car in neutral how come is stuck on one gear. Towing got no problems. That mean it wasnt in neutral it was in gear but the clutch is stuck and seem the gear is in neutral. You should have clutch problem before you think about gear box.

Hi, Www_105eya for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

I have a 1982 Maxim 650 that is stuck in 2nd gear. Does anybody have any ideas?


There is a small spring that returns the shift mechanism to a neutral position that has probably broken or become unhooked. The same problem can happen if upon reassembly the shift activator gears slide past each other and no longer twist the mechanism. Either way you should be able to look at the mechanism and spring by taking off the shift lever and removing the engine cover behind the lever.

With the engine off, pull in the clutch and while rolling the bike forward or backward slowly, see if it you can shift it into neutral. If not, you have a transmission problem.
