Reverse gear problems in a XF falcon 5 speed gearbox

My father has an XF falcon S Pack with a 5 speed gearbox. we can get all the forward gears but we cannot get reverse. even when I switch the motor off I still cannot get it into reverse.
Has the selector for reverse gear broken or just wore out.
how do I fix it as I will do the mechanics myself
If anyone can help me it would be appreciated
Many thanks

on the early one (0507)theres a adjustment on the side for the aliment of reverse but if its like most of the 5 speed of that era may be a lot of freeplay in the bearings and bushers in the shifter wear out.

that is if its the early xf later is the t5 dont know about the t5ob
