Angry Manual mode not working

Hi there,

Any idea why transmission manual mode will stop working.

Does it shift the same as if it were in auto mode? Or does it delay in shifting?

Default Just Manual

In Auto it works just fine, the problem is with manual. It stop working, it stays showing the "D" all the time even if you try shifting up or down. Could it be that the plastic piece that moved with the stick is broken?

Hi, I've had the same issue and basically what happened was this:

Your picture that you had posted shows a huge gap, that's what broke on my old 2006 V50 as well. We got that replaced and yes, of course it was $300. But what they forgot to put back in was the 'magnet' which controls this. Another user on this forum created a post exactly like this and it turns out he put the rigid side of the piece facing upwards instead of the smooth bit upwards (the piece you see on your shifter). The magnet needs to be replaced by your Volvo dealer I think, or at least, that's where I always got the V50 repaired/serviced at. I can't remember how much it cost to get it placed back in, but that's what you need, including a new surface piece for your shifter to prevent this from happening again. The magnet could even be somewhere underneath your shifter...

Here's the thread bv524 created (the person who had a similar incident to you) - hope this helps and do let us know once you've fixed it/have an update!

P.S: This thread was running great until someone thread jacked it, so after a few posts you will realise it's completely irrelevant.

Hope this helps you out!

The broken piece in the OP's pic is the shifter blind. It's fairly easy to replace if you're mechanically inclined. Part is cheap at US$14 from online stores.

Here's a link to another forum that has a step-by-step procedure with pix. The hardest part of doing it is pulling the gear **** off, takes quite a bit of muscle power to pull straight up. Not much leverage room but it can be done, if a 165lb weakling can do it! :-D

Smile S40 Geartronic Shifter blind replacement

BV343,
Thanks a million! You gave me all information needed to replace the Shifter Blind (pn:8699465). I ordered online the part ($30 including S&H) followed the instructions in the two links you posted.. Done! (yes, removing the **** was a pain..., but it was worth the effort).
Thank you all!
