I've had the cruiser since new, it has got less than 10,000 kms on
the clock. Have recently started towing a 3t caravan with it.

We just loaded it up to go out for lunch, put it in reverse and it
wouldn't move. THe back end raised up a bit when a bit of throttle was applied. The hand brake was off and it was in high range. Tried it in foward and reverse. Then I tried to put it into low range but the gears crashed a bit so I turned the engine off and put it in low range, engine back on - then put it into reverse - won't move. Moved gear lever down into 1st - gears crashed a bit going from 2nd to first - still couldn't move. Got the neighbour to give me a hand to push it - put it in neutral, gave it a shove, something towards the back let go with a bit of a thud and now it moves. THe gears still grind a bit moving from high to low range.

Any ideas on what's gone wrong here??

Been parked in the garage for a while after washing it? could be that the rear handbrakes shoes rusted to the drums, pads to drums?
Auto full of fluid?

In addition to this august forum, you could try [ http://www.lcool.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=3&sid=1279a2909f8c7cd677b8551e0e4d9ad2 ] - you need to join there too, but there lays a huge repository of first hand information by owners of all things cruiser.

Just guessing here: did you have it in low range prior to the problem? If the wheels can't slip on a loose surface, transmission wind-up might cause a problem. I understand that jacking up a wheel can release it.

I'll go with Ozhumvee, hand brake stuck on, the thud was it releasing. The grinding from high too low, is this when the enigine is still cold and idling that bit higher. If so try when engine is at normal operating temp, then try it again. Let us know what happens. I never leave handbrake on vehicle if going to be left for a while and especially if its just been washed. Id pull the rear discs off and give the drum a good clean out. Possibly a bit of crud cought up in there as well.........WHG
