No such a thing as a front wheel drive 1989 F-150 Lloyd. But that's how we learn, I learn more that i explain on this forum. Anyway the part in blue

click these for full screen the part in blue is where all this is

I know you can't see all those gears but you can try manipulating these with a big screwdriver, it won't take a lot of leverage, and get it in neutral
