The high / low has to be accessed through the side of the transmission. With it sticking in gear, you can have a damaged shift fork,or the sliding gear binding on the shaft. Only way to know which , is removing the cover and checking the parts! Less hope it is shift fork, as the transmission has to be removed to do anything with the gear! See the link attached.
