Default 997 Trans problem

The trans on my 2005 997just locked in third as I was attempting to shift to fourth. The lever is just loose now and obviously not connected to the tranny anymore. It's under warranty so I'll have the dealer pick it up next week but my question is does anyone have a suggestion on a quick fix to make the car drivable. Thanks

Sounds like a shift linkage issue. You'll have to get that car up on a lift to remove the underpanel.

Any Porsche people in your area? Dealer?

That's a bummer for sure.

Thanks, that's what I figured. I'll call the dealer tomorrow.

If the car had not been under warranty, I would have suggested checking out the lever linkage under the centre console, but as it is, dont play with it and give the dealer an opprtunity to say you have compromised the warranty.

Thanks Bob, I had to restrain myself from going thru the console for that very reason. This dealer is pretty good and I don't anticipate any problems. They will need to put it up on a flatbed and since its locked in third we'll have to hold the clutch in to move it. I'll be sure to be there when that takes place.

Just got car back from dealer, it was a broken shift cable which they replaced with apoligies.
