    Plastic part has failed, it needs to be replaced with the metal replacement gear.

    This has happened to me several times. My husband hit it once while climbing in. It took me 15 minutes of going in circles over curbs. Rolling from neutral to drive to reverse, rocking it in a sense and it finally popped out. My issue was from salt corrosion from the last trip to Mexico. A friend had told me over time they just stick. Since then I periodically put it into 4h and 4L in my driveway just to get the gears moving. I didn't have any issues when I needed to use it this trip down south. Good luck!
