    1999 9-5 manual trans shifter trouble

    While driving tonight I stopped at store. I left car running when I got back in I couldn't get trans in reverse. Also no first second or fifth gear engagement. So I drove home in 3rd and 4th gears. When I got home I pulled boot up on shifter. Pulled a white plastic piece up put shifter in reverse to turn off car and remove key. Car shifter flawlessly before this.

    Ok so this morning I took a look at shifter. Seems the plastic retainer came undone. There's a spring that took me a few minutes to figure out where it went. I put everything back together. Than under hood the shift linkage ball and socket came apart. Snapped it back together took it for a cruise and all seems good.
