Tilt it up on the Auger and take the bottom cover off.
The Friction wheel might be rusted to the Shaft.

Car will not drive forward or reverse after shifting.

Make sure the shift cable hasn't come loose from the mechanism on the transmission and that it's moving as it should when the shift lever is being moved.

You can try shifting into manual 1 to get moving then once you get going shift the lever up into Drive. This should work, then drive it to a shop to have your ****** looked at.

Hi, I was working with the snowblower and suddenly it stoped moving forward and backword. how can i resolve this. jamie we are going to do is check the "THROW".of the "shifting lever" ( the FWD*NEUTRAL*REVERSE LEVER(handle)).....""Look at your linkage"" ...if it is a solid rod that connects the "shifting lever" with the transmission (make it go thingy), often times down near the transmission (where the rod goes to from the "shifting lever"))there is a short slotted bar that rocks back and forth on a "pinion" (rocking thing) .... look where the long rod (from the lever) connects to the short "rocking" arm (from transmission)and see if it has slipped...this will sometimes show by a shiny spot where the rod used to be fastened...simply loosen lock-nut and reposition where it used to be..then re-tighten....(we are trying to increase how far the short rod moves when you change gears from Forward to Reverse)......on some models this same rocking motion is adjusted up on top by where the "shift lever" is..look on the under-side of the "shift lever"..(which is attached to a "mounting" plate that connects to the handles together) that is mounted on a "pinion" bracket ) and sometimes there is a slot under side of the shift lever there could also be a shiny spot where the rod used to be attached..reposition where it used to be..or move until sufficient "THROW" is acheived to shift gears from forward to reverse......""IF"" it is a "housed cable" that attaches the "shift lever" to the "transmission"..then there may be a broken or loose "bracket"..or a "return spring" on the bottom that has come loose or fallen off...If these options dont help..then it may be the "engage"..or "clutch " that has issues...a little deeper problem... (if you print this answer and read it "while" looking at snowblower and touch the parts that i physically desribe when they are mentioned it will be much less confusing...mechanicking is difficult to explain...kind of a hands on thing...) hope this helps a little..let me know if i can further assist..if I have at all... and ..all machines are the parts that i explained may not even be much for uniformity!!! for listening...Todd

2001 Hyundai - reverse gear is inoperative. The

If I understand you correctly, you have ALL forward gears working, but reverse doesn't?... then the problem is in the transmission itself or the linkage on the trans linkage into reverse.
