You may need to free up the cables going to the shifter your rear wheel is easy to
remove you need a 5/8 or a 15 milometer wrench // once removed check the rear
shaft the play you feel is the shaft needs to be tightened up
not the two bolts you loosend to take the wheel off
there are two more nuts on the in side tighten them up a little more not to tight but
enough that the wheel will spin easy with no play/// also use some 3-n-1 oil on the gear
shifter and the Assembly that changes the gear it needs to move freely
then reinstall the wheel

i hope this helps you

My 2000 mercedez benz s500 the shifter is stuck


The shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.


There are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this occurred then its shifter assembly alignment issue.




For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

My daughters 2001 suzuki jr-80 was running fine, but the shifter jammed in gear, not sure what gear it's in but it will run. it was not crashed or even layed over at the time the problem originated....


The bike probably has a bent shift fork. The only other possibility is a shift index wheel assembly has become loose or the spring has broken. Pray for the index wheel problem. That you may be able to fix yourself. The right side case comes off, then the clutch and kick starter. Now the index wheel assembly is accessibletombones49_193.gif. If it is a shift fork, I don't recommend the repair for the home mechanic. Some special tools are needed. The entire engine must be torn down to get to the forks. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

How to move CX 650 with broken clutch cable stuck in first gear


Either the tiny shift spring under the rear cover is broken or the shift linkage gear next to it is out of position. If this is the case there is no way to put the bike in neutral without removing the engine and taking off the rear cover to fix the shift linkage ( first gear lock up can happen if the shift gear pops out of place during reassembly. Always check your shifter is working correctly before bolting down the rear cover.).
If your only problem was a broken clutch cable you could shift the bike to neutral with the motor off and push it around on it's wheels. If the problem is inside the motor and it has to be moved right away put a furniture dolly under the rear wheel and keep a block of wood handy to place under the side stand to park the bike until it can be taken off the dolly.

Cannot get key to turn in jeep. Have already driven it numerous times today, suddenly can't move steering wheel or gear shift and key will not turn. Help!


Try turning the steering wheel (hard) right and left while turning the key. Steering lock , and ignition lock work in conjunction with each other.

Slipping gears on bicycle


Make sure the rear wheel axle is snugged up against he dropouts in the frame and that the wheel is centered in the brakes. Also, check the seating of the shifter cable at each end, but most likely at the rear shifter, to make sure the jacket is inside the ferrule.

Of course, it is impossible to get a sense for how well maintained the bike is. Perhaps the shifting problem's appearance is not related to the wheel removal and may be something else like bad cables or cable housing. The cable should slide easily in the housing. Shift the bike to its lowest (easiest) gears in front and in back. Then, without moving the crank, manually tug on the rear shifter cable from the rear and push it in. Resistance is bad. Sometimes a bit of lube inside the housing will buy you some time. Use something thin and squirt a little into the end then cycle the cable in and out to distribute it.

If you don't have a bike repair stand, find a small tree with a stout, narrow, low horizontal branch about shoulder height and hook the front of your seat on it so you can spin the cranks and test the shifting. If it's hard to downshift the rear (pulling cable into the housing) it will likely not freely shift upward because the only froce pulling the cable out is the little spring in the derailleur.

Shift to the highest (smallest) cog and sight along the axis of the it and the two rear derailleur pullies. They should all be in the same exact vertical alignment. If they're parallel but not aligned you can adjust the barrel on the cable at the derailleur. Try a small turn then shift up and down while turning the crank to get the cable and shifter to settle where the new adjustment wants to be.

If you ride regualrly it would be worthwhile to find a local bike shop (LBS) and get to know them. They can teach you some self sufficiency in exchange for a little business from you.

****! 1989 Ranger stuck shifter on new clutch!


Somehow you have it stuck in two gears. If I remember correctly your shift mechanism is inside the unit. If so, you will need to remove the trans and the cover, then re-position the shift forks. If you get lucky, you may be able to free it up by wiggling the shift lever but I doubt it.
Do not run it 'till you manage to free it up or you can break a gear. If you removed shifter when working on it, first check that you put it back in correctly before tearing everything apart!

1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock


if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.
