Question Problems getting into reverse gear!

I know I've read some replies to threads about people having issues with getting into reverse gear, but I haven't read a concrete answer to this problem.

I looked at the bushings on my car, Manual 5 speed, and the large bushing is replaced.
The smaller bushing seems to be ok (a little crackled, but still in normal shape).
I haven't changed that one, partly because I don't have many tools, and it's not easy to replace.

So I left that one as is; the larger bushing was a good fix to the gearstick. But I still have issues in getting into reverse. I have to slam the stick into reverse to have effect. sometimes it gets into reverse, barely, and then pops out and I hear the gears rubbing against eachother.

The bushings I ordered for the PT came 1 large, and 3 smaller. I only know where the larger and one smaller goes. The other 2 I don't know where they need to go!

Advise / solutions?

Thank you!

Default Re: Problems getting into reverse gear!

lots of manual cars and trucks do that, when it don't wants to engage, or don't fully engage, just apply a little pressure on the stick to get into reverse while very slowly releasing the clutch, the gear should engagne completely as soon as the clutch will start to grab
