Repair Lewmar 48's (or is it 38's?)

I have an '81 C-38 with Lewmar 48 three speed winches for my jib sheets. THe gear shift button is stuck in the down/high speed position making it impossible to crank under a load. Has anyone else had this problem and how easy was it to fix?

I have 46STs, I expect you'd have 48s, so I don't know your answer but if you haven't done so, try pulling the service manual for your winches from The 46STs are very easy to service, hopefully the same for 48s.

Good luck.
