Ok, well a few nights ago I was in my drive way listening to music in my car (1989 325is). I was bored so I put it in reverse (clutch in), but when I put it back in neutral, the shifter was locked up. I couldn't go into any gear. So turned it on. The shifter was in neutral but the car jerked backwards and stalled. So it must still be in reverse. Does anyone know what might have happened to make it stuck in reverse? Also how would I go about fixing it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There's a thread about it here on roadfly. EXACTLY the same as your problem.
