1988 944 Forever stuck in gear


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1988; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 160,000;

Have owned this 944 for about a year, and it has always run and shifted very well. On the way home from work the other day, I was in third gear about to shift into fourth, and couldn't get out of third! In fact, I couldn't get into any other gear, or into neutral, for that matter. (Was close to home, so I was able to get home in 3rd without stopping.) The clutch disengages because I can depress the pedal and the car coasts. The shifter is not budging at all, though. I've looked at the shift linkage, and all looks okay externally. Have double-checked the clutch with the car up on jack stands: clutch in, can turn the rear wheels; clutch pedal up, rear wheels don't turn.
