Rep: 67 Retrospekt will become famous soon enough
Default My brother Volvo 240 (Transmission problem)

There is a button on the side of the knob that switches gears. (Its auto) I guess he pressed that button on accident so Overdrive turns on. Makes the car feel real heave and slow. Bad acceleration too.

So we think "Oh, it's alright, we'll just press it again", which would be perfectly fine if the button didn't break. Now we sit there pressing the button all the time and it won't turn off. It's terribly annoying. Any other way to turn it off?

He doesn't have that. The shifter is just metal pole with box on top. We could probably dissasemble the top box where the switch is broken.
