Fellow Bimmer Heads
This morning,as I was about to back in to my parking spot at work,the gear lever would not go in to reverse ,park.............just Drive and Natural !!!!!
So I ended up parking the car side ways(NO REVERSE),and left the keys in the ignition,cause I can't get the keys out either..........................any help would be grateful .:)

P.S. 1995 bmw 525i (Automatic).......like you couldn't tell(LOL)

Pretty sure a solenoid die in the shifter assembly.

Take the handle off and the shift surround.

Try to free of the problem which should be obvious ... If not ... Break it ...

What I ended up doing ...

First of all ,thanks for replaying
I took the lever and the cover off,and I did see the solenoid.........now come the all important question................how do you "free it"?........and what did you mean by breaking it?
