Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

There is a plastic piece inside the gear box that hold the gear in place and wears out and breaks overtime and results in the issue that you are having.The repair does not require a complete rebuild and the part can be replaced after removing and opening up the gear box.
