Hey guys, there is a A/M switch behind my gear shift, i know that the A means automatic M means manual, but how to change the gear under M switch?
There is no gear shift clips at all. Under M switch, i can't actually change the gear from 1-2-3 manually because there is nothing for me to push up or down in order to change the gear. The only thing i can do is to changing the gear under M switch by using the throttler, hit the the gas pad for a while then release it, the car will move from gear 1 to gear 2.

When you put the A/M switch to M, it locks the gear into either 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th gear depending where your gear selector is at.

To switch to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th you have to move the gear selector into the according number.

I would not recommend doing this because the transmission wasn't made to do that and it'll kill your transmission.
