I have a 2005 807 2.2 HDI Executive. I have for some time experienced difficulty in engaging reverse gear? I now cannot engage reverse gear at all!! Any suggestions if it is something relatively minor then I will repair.

807 Manual Gear Selection

Thank you for your advice. I think the problem is with the white plastic ball at the base of the gear selection lever which has split. I think I can get a replacement unit for £99 which I am inclined to take a punt on and see if it resolves the issue. Other connections/cables etc appear to be OK?

Yes & no, the split to the ball won't be helping but is it contributing to the lost motion resulting in the gear lever being unable to travel far enough across to the left to enable you to get reverse? Does leaving the gearlever shroud off help?
The main isue is wear to the steel balls from the gearbox shift mechanism onto the control plate, hence the advice to shim them up by adding say a length of tube onto them.
