It depends so much on the design of the vehicle, for example the original SAAB 900 (don't know about the "new 900") was built so that you just pulled a cover off of the top of the transmission (which was in the front of the car, the engine was in backwards) removed another cover from the front of the transmission and popped out the clutch shaft, pulled a few ...

I would suggest removing the linkage from the shifter and move the linkage directly at the transmission into second. I believe it is one arm. In and out is like moving the shifter side to side. Rotating the arm puts it into the individual gears. Play with it and you should be able to find reverse as it sounds different when you go in. Put it in second, ...

The best way I know of to remove a bolt like this is to use a ratchet with (preferably) an impact 6 point socket. Put it on the bolt and hit the ratchet with a large hammer. One or two good solid hits will often times break it loose. You can also hit the head of the bolt with the hammer, just a couple of taps, not hard swings can also help loosen it. Do NOT ...
