Re: t5 reverse problem
Is this a common problem? I just got onto the Trans/Driveline section to post that I have this problem, but found you have started a thread on it!! My T5 engages (rather sloppy tho) and then I start backing up and it pops out. Its worse when its got a load on it (backing up a hill). Its also really bad if you dont ride the clutch, the more revs the bigger the "bang" when it jumps out of reverse. I can manage to reverse if Im on a flat surface and have low revs and ride the clutch. Do I have to book it in to get fixed or is it a simple problem I can fix? By the way Im not skilled enough to rebuild a gearbox. Any idea of the cost to get this fixed, professionally or by me?
