Your issue is in the ratchet key/spring area.....





Remove the rear wheel then "E" clip #17 and washer #18, Carefully slide gear #1 off the transaxle shaft. The key and spring may drop out of the shaft so have a parts pan or something under it so not to loose them.

Clean all the oil and dirt out of the shaft slot and off the gear-spring and key, Your dealer should have known better than to use oil in this area.

Get a tube of powder graphite from your local hardware store and put a little in the shaft slot then on the spring-key and on the inside of the gear, Re-assemble and you should be good to go.

Never use any lubricant that will attract sand, All it will do is cause sticking and premature wear......
