I just put in a new stereo into my 2001 Forester. when i put everything back together i tried to move my car back in, the gearstick will move into the spots for the gears, but when i let the clutch out nothing happens, its suck in neutral. My first thought was a blown fuse, but im not sure what fuse it would be if that is in fact the problem.

 

Any suggestions would be much appreciated as i cant drive it haha 

thanks 

Max

There's no fuse for gears in a manual transmission. The transmission is purely mechanical.

Either the gearshift is not moving all the way into the gear, or something internal to the transmission is damaged. I'm betting on the first since transmissions don't break if the car isn't moving.

With the engine not running try shifting through ALL of the gears, then see if the shifter feels the same with the engine running.

I tried it with the engine both on and off and it felt the same to me. I moved to back to put the stereo in, and then when i went to move it back in it didnt work. that was the reason i though it must be something electrical.

I would bet that you got something wedged in the way of the shifter or accidentally disconnected something while you were removing/replacing interior parts to install the stereo. It's most likely simple. Pull everything back off and check that the linkages are hooked up and moving when you move the shifter. Also check that they didn't come loose from the transmission. In my Legacy the linkages are bolted on, but I've seen setups in other vehicles where it's just a ball joint that can sometimes pop loose.
