Does it make any nasty graeting noises?

If so see pics of my gearbox rebuild for dead reverse.

But if all forward gears work, but reverse does not, then that gear can't be selected.

Either the cogs have no teeth to mesh, or the selector for has bent so that it does not engage the gear.

For what it's worth, there is a retro fit kit for the 2nd senario on NG900's as they use an essentially 9000 box, but force reverse to be selected before the key is removed, and people have forced the box with the engine off in reverse to remove the key, bending the selector and synchro.

Does he leave in in reverse when parked?
