    Possible Clutch Problems

    Ok so I was at the grocery store yesterday and as I went to put my WS6 in reverse, I discovered that it was not going in. I struggled for about two minutes to get it in R and finally I did. Later on someone told me it was either a solenoid problem or the whole clutch... I didn't want to take advice from someone who has never driven one of these cars, but at the same time I don't know much myself. Someone please help!!!!!

    sounds like the reverse lock out solenoid is going bad. If it were the clutch, it would affect more then just reverse.

    Were you able to get it to go into gear if you swung it to neutral between 1st and 2nd and then into Reverse?

    Clutch or the clutch hydraulics could cause a condition where its hard to get into 1st or Reverse while the car is at a stand still. And grinding into other gears while driving and shifting.
