Re: C4 won't shift into reverse or park suddenly
Yes. I think you are thinking about this too hard.
As I said:
So, simply disconnect the shifter linkage rod from the transmission shift arm at the point shown in the red circle of the 1st photo. I know, it's a C6 in that photo, but it's generally the same on a C4. Once the shift linkage is disconnected, you should be able to move the transmission's little shift arm by hand, to select any and all gears. Can you do that?
Ok so finally was able to do this. I was only able to get three clicks, which means its only shifting though 4 gears (P,R,N,D I assume?) Here is a link to a vid just so you guys can let me know if that looks/sounds right, as I said before Transmissions are completely new to me. Maybe time to take it to the shop? https://youtu.be/9UVr7U7aHyE
