Shift (ES)

I go to shift and it makes a noise but does not shift occasionally. Especially when trying to go from 1st to neutral. Will go up fine but going down it has trouble and like I said it makes a sound but no shift

Adjust your clutch.
If that doesn't fix the issue, take your shift motor off, remove and clean grease off of reduction gears under the motor, VERY LIGHTLY grease with a light white lithium grease, and reinstall.

If it still doesn't work disassemble and check your shift motor. The shift motor might be worn out.
