When u come out reverse the gear stick goes stiff, hard to go back into first gear. been advised might be a pin, found piece of plastic under gear stick cover round shaped.
Fiats do not enjoy a sound reputation for their transmissions. If you are confident in your skills, remove the cover / boot that surrounds the gear stick. and check it carefully for fitting into the housing. There may be a plastic of fibre cup that the ball of the gear stick rides in. depending on the locating device for this "bearing" will affect the movement of the gear stick. If you can lift the gearstick and it shows lots of slop, then the 'bushing is no longer holding the gearstick in the correct neutral position which enables each gear, including reverse, to be selected easily. The reason for the 'bushing' failing will have to be ascertained, it may be a simple fix, or it may be lots of aggravation, depending if the parts are all present and can be salvaged.
