Did you remove the whole shifter plate or did you just remove the three bolts and pull the shifter out?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
3 screws
Expert:  kalamykid replied 10 months ago.

If you look down the hole where the shifter goes, you should be able to see three slides with a notch in the center of them. If it is in first gear then the slide on the right will be moved back. Pull it back up so all three slides are lined up with the notches in a line.

vvoid he caall how do I shift the gears
Expert:  kalamykid replied 10 months ago.

Use a screw driver to line all three of the notches back up. If all three are in the center and lined up, the transmission will be in neutral. Your payment for the live phone called failed. I am sorry but I cannot call you till this is corrected.
