Question about Cars & Trucks
2008 Citroen Relay 2.2 HDI gearbox selector wont go in reverse- all other gears possible- but box is a bit stiff- not as it was- hoping that the selector is just worn or something- any ideas? I went into third a few weeks back accidentally when it was meant to be 5th and it has never felt quite right since-

check your fluid level in the resivor if it is full you might need a new clutch , they do wear out . there is no adjustment just replacement .

you surprise me,these vehicles are bullet proof under normal circumstances and yes the syncros can wear out like any make of vehicle ,but this old grandad who passed his test in a viva with no syncro on first gear ,and passed his hgv on a vehicle with no syncros at all was taught to drive in a different era and rule one was neutral and handbrake on when stopped ,not holding it on a hill by slipping the clutch ,secondly to not put a vehicle in first gear whilst moving ,well it wouldnt go anyway ,double the clutch between gears so as to reduce the wear on the syncros and gears .not to ride the clutch between changing gears and also change down using double the clutch to save the brakes and stop vehicle slipping or skidding on a wet road ,not fly up to a roundabout ,slam on brakes force it into first gear at 30 mph then try to imitate evil kenival by going around on two wheels .This sort of driving will only damage the gearbox like syncros and clutches not lasting very long .

Sounds like one of the levers inside the transmission is either broken or otherwise disengaged. Remove the shifter to see if you can see any obvious reason.
