Hello and Welcome..

My name is MIKE.. Im happy to help / advise..

This is a common issue on these - and its usually a broken selector cable.... it will need to be physically checked through the selector system - then new cables fitted if found to be that.

IF its not that - then you get broken selectors inside the transmission - that will cause this.. That involves a removal / strip and repair of the transmission..if its that.... But do be sure the cables are checked properly first - again - thats the usual cause to be honest.

Im very pleased to have helped you -Let me know if you need anything more-
