Question my shifter moves in gear

i was pulling into a parkinglot in second gear and i slowed down and went to downshift into first almost at a stop. then it grinded and now its really hard to get into first gear (but that could be because i have a bad clutch) and when its in gear the shifter wont move left but it will go really far right, thats while its in gear. if its in second i can push it all the way to reverse. ? Help ME!

Glad that you found the problem and got it squared away.

Thanks for posting the fix.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

I have had that same problem on my car for a good while now but was never able to fix it. How exactly did you find that it was the shifter linkage? Can you go into a into detail about the shifter linkage? I'd love to fix my sloppy shifter.
