Clunking on engaging reverse on ZF4

Hi, the ZF 4 speed on my 96 ES V8 is giving a distinct "clunk" when engaging
reverse, is this a sign of imminent wallet damage? I hope not, just bought
an MR2 Turbo to play with so need bucks to insure that
Group 20!!! :-(

My RRC had the clunk from the day I got it to the day I sold it. No
problems in 2 years/~40K miles. Never got any worse - just made sure I gave
a pause between ahead and astern. YMMV, of couse.

Thanks Richard, I do that anyway, it's not really a car to rush about in,
more a relaxed grumble along!!

I doubt if it will get noticeably worse, in that case, but IANAMechanic.

Not a car to rush about in? Have you tried "Full Ahead Both" on that brass
lever on the bridge? "Aye aye Cap'n" - whoosh. :-)

True, it can go like it had its arse kicked but then you have to worry about
stopping or getting round a corner!! especially in mine after the 2" lift -
bit "wallowy" but it articulates over obstacles a dream :-)

I pinned myself to the seat last week in ours up the lakes on an
Overtake...used to driving Mrs D's old Rangie most of the time ...certainly
got the blood pumping as it dropped two and squatted.

I don't mind doing that running on gas, the thought of single figures MPG on
petrol is scary !!!

one of the sources for that is front axle CV joints. On the 110, I used to
get an impressive great clang going from D to R, which improved when I
replaced one of the CV joints which had taken to rattling when on full lock.
I never got around to replacing the other side, but I expect that was worn
and would have made a similar improvement, although I suspect that you'll
never actually eliminate it completely, there are just too many joints and
splines and so forth in the front half of the transmission especially, all
of which have to reverse when you swap from F to R...

it should stop pretty well if you apply the anchors hard - mine showed a
noticeable improvement from getting the rear calipers to work properly.
