    Low gear in a p38 1996

    For the past two years I haven’t been able to shift into low gear!, when I go to neutral the transmission signal in the dashboard keeps beeping with nothing happening, today I tried something unconventional I was backing up and without going into complete stop I put the car in drive and the car “hiccuped” little bit and then I shifted into low gear and lo and behold it worked!

    I know this is not a scientific experiment but it’s worth trying before spending the money.

    That probably means that when your car is in neutral it still has a bit of drive.
    My Discovery does the same.

    If you shift with the car still moving just a bit, it's often easier for the gears to engage.

    I wish I would have known this earlier ( how come no one mentions it on the forum?).
