Reverse shift

I didn't use my 86 BMW e30 last winter. When I start the engine the other day no problem. The problem I have now is to reverse. I can't shift the stick to reverse. Also maybe a wrong position - is that the opposite of 5th gear or near 2nd gear?? Need your expertise please. Thks

All the way to the left and up. When it's in neutral push it to the left and there should be a "wall" pop it passed that and push up.

This e30 is now being parted out. NO body panels are for sale, bumpers/fenders/hood/mirrors/valance or front turn signals. Everything else is up for grabs. Euro grills/cluster are sold, suspension/brakes/LSD/rear tails are already spoken for.

it could be stiff from not being used. just play with your shifter til it goes into place.
