2000 95 aero wont shift into reverse.

Ive had my 2000 95 aero for about 4 years now and it has never wanted to shift into reverse. The issue is getting worse and now there is no way to park the car without letting it roll backward first to slip it in reverse. Any ideas?

My reverse lock was also removed before i bought it. The collar is there, but it does nothing.

I would start by making sure the clutch is in good condition and the shifter linkage is aligned properly and working well.

But I would guess this is a bend shift fork that was common on early 9-5's. I swapped out my early 9-5 trans for one from MY06. It was cheaper than having the trans update kit (shown here) installed.

Oof...was hoping it wouldnt be a take-apart-the-transmission type of deal...could use a new clutch anyway, will start there. My plans for the car are to get it dirt ready and possibly do some rallying or at least have some fun on the weekends, so reverse isnt necessary but the clutch is. Ill start there and keep you posted, but from my research thus far shows you to be correct.

Much thanks.

The 1999-2001 9-5 manuals had a recall on the transmissions for a reverse engagement problem. Most of them were repaired, but some slipped through the cracks. On my personal 2000 9-5 Aero, I drove it for 3 years without good reverse and just recently swapped the transmission (along with all other associated parts).
