there ,good afternoon to you
Ok the first thing to inspect is the gear cables
I have seen cases whereby the gear cable detaches from the ball end The gear selector arm pivot
If you go under the vehicle at the passengers side front of the vehicle you will see a blavk cover held by small flick clips
Pop this cover off and inspect the gear shift cables to see if one of them has become detached as I suspect this is your concern
To resolve this issue you should have new gear cables fitted but you can re secure the cable by popping it back into the ball end and then using a suitable cable tie etc as a temp fix
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
