Sounds like the actuator motor stuck, try lightly tapping on the actuator motor assembly with a small hammer or rock while someone turns the knob to the FWD position, sometimes that will work for a time or two but you will eventually replace the actuator assembly.


Are you in Neutral and going under 5mph while trying to switch? If not, try what G A said, or rock the whole vehicle back and forth.
