Re: Stuck in 2 gears.

Being in the business, I've seen a lot of transmissions stuck in two
gears. The speed and sloppiness of the shifting motion can aggravate the
wear situation and make it happen. Common in old bugs, and easily fixed
if it's 1/2, harder if it's 3/4. One could remove the nose cone on the
Audi style trans and manually return the shift rails to the neutral
position. Hard, but it could be done. Always the fear that it could
recur. Careful and precise shifting should lessen the chances of it
happening again. 
BTW, I too have a nice FWD 5 speed available. HTH, John
