  10. 1994 900SE V6: can't engage 1st or 2nd gear.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My lovely 1994 900SE V6 started having some play in the gear lever yesterday. Wisely, I ignored this. This afternoon I couldn't shift into 1st or 2nd. I can move the lever across the normal range, but it feels loose, and when I try to go into 1st or 2nd I get 3rd or 4th instead. I'm worried...
