your cable has streched to the limit and will sooner or later snap when the car is cold gear shifting is a ok i presume but as the engine gets hot the cable heats up and then you find that the car will not go into revervse without a clunk, crunch or a big thud when u turn engine of and then select its fine but i think u need to change the cable .systemshock869 said:if i drive my car around much, then stop and try to put it in reverse to park it, the gear grinds and won't engage. i have to shut off my engine and put it in reverse. does anyone know how to fix this?

what cable ?
System shock was talking about reverse gear not engaging , im confused .
isnt he just talking the symptoms of the Common 900 reverse synchro fault that
they all seem to have at one time or another ?
if i remember rightly my last 900 did exactly what systemshocks car is doing , and if i parked on a slight angle it was more difficult .
Try when you stop to park , select 1st gear and then straight into reverse from 1st before you turn off the engine .
of course i have been known to talk rubbish sometimes
Well, it will cost $$$$ to replace the reverse gear and its sychro, then, what about the other "wear"parts in the transmission ???..quincy said:Ive had the same problem for 3 years== The advice you have been given is good-- its the reverse synch== I use 1st and then reverse== its still pops out = I just stick it in again==(humn) -It isnt worth fixing I dont think on a 900 that is 8-10 years old. You will get used to i.
