MOTORISTS are only just discovering this little-known button that can help you change gears when they jam.

There's nothing worse than motor problems when you're trying to get somewhere in a rush.

It's especially annoying when you can't even leave your driveway when the gear stick gets stuck in park.

But, drivers were stunned when they learned there is a hidden function to help them out.

In a video posted to TikTok by @dongcheshiji, the car whizz demonstrated how to get you back on the road.

She explained the hack and said: "If your car can't shift gears, don't rush to call a tow truck.

"Let's take off this dust cover and find the little yellow button inside.

"Press it in with the car key, then the car can easily be put into gear."

Viewers were amazed after discovering the life-saving feature and flooded the hack with positive comments.

One impressed motorist penned: "My parents think I'm a car genius because of you, thank you."

"These videos are so helpful", wrote another.

A third agreed: "This girl is a queen."

Gear sticks can jam due to the normal wear and tear of driving, and in manual cars, gears one and two are the most commonly stuck.

They can also stop functioning properly when your transmission fluids are low, so it is good to have a check.

Another possibility could be a damaged hub sleeve, which connects the space between the main gears and allows the stick to move from side to side.

If your gear stick continues to jam it is always best to have a mechanic take a look.

The car guru also shared some useful tips and tricks on how to release the petrol tank cover without chipping the paint.

And, how to get out of the boot if you ever find yourself locked in a car.
