I have a late 1999 S80 T6, and this is one of the many things I have had fixed. There is a solenoid in the auto gear shift system, that you can feel move once speed goes over a few kph. Apparently it is linked into the brake light circuit, I guess so you can't take it out of park without your foot on the brake. Mine used to get stuck in park and take 30 or 40 seconds before the solenoid decided to withdraw/move whatever, so I could get it out of park. Quite dangerous if you've put it in park while at the lights or ?? My Volvo dealer had to replace something in this electrical circuit, and yet another claim on the mechanical insurance!

How do you fix a stuck slide in a brass instrument?

The best way to avoid stuck slides is to keep them clean and lightly greased, moving them every couple of months so they never get stuck. If you know you are not going to use the instrument for a period of time then consider removing the slides and wrapping them in soft cloth. You can try WD40 or similar lubricant and leave overnight before trying again. That said, if you have got stuck slides then your best bet is to take it to a local repairer to avoid further damaging the instrument - I have had many instruments come to me where Dad has attempted a repair and ended up having to buy a new slide - and in one case a new instrument!

How do you know if a have a bent mechanism on my trumpet?

If you have a bent valve slide, or valve, or valve casing, they usually wont move. Valve's and valve casings would prevent the valves from moving, while bent valve slides wont easily pull out. If you suspect a bent valve, valve casing, or slide, try cleaning and oiling it first, valves and slides can become stuck with the lack of valve oil or slide grease.
