Hi

I have recently puchased a 9-3 Aero (51 Reg) and on a couple of occasions had problems with the car being stuck in Reverse gear when starting it.

It seems that some times when I go to start the car, the Reverse Gear stays locked and can't be moved. One solution has been to start the car and then (with it locked in Reverse) ease the clutch out until the car jolts back and stalls. Although this does not always work. Sometimes just turning the key on and off and depressing the clutch seems to release the gear stick from Reverse into Neutral.

Can anyone offer advice on this problem, or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks

All of this really strains the fragile shift control mechanism.

But I suspect the main problem is the reverse synchronizer - an internal repair at $$$$ is necessary..
Assure that the clutch is properly adjusted ( this from the good old days of the manual clutch and brake adjustments...)...
Then ascertain that the mounts are in good shape- that the transmission is not moving all over the place during shifting..
