Your automatic transmission has an internal low and indirect clutch. The indirect clutch is what's used when your vehicle is in reverse. You might have a heavy jerking when you put it into gear that feels like vehicle got hit by another or loud rattling or chattering in gears. It very well may be coming apart as you think and soon, so I'd recommend taking it to your local transmission shop to inspect and test it and they can give you a more detailed idea of what it would take to fix it. good luck

H there,

It's either related to your clutch (is it cable operated or hydraulic?) being out of adjustment or low fluid pressure, or you have a loose linkage.

I would investigate these 2 issues, before looking at the gearbox.

Also, have your vehicle checked for diagnostic codes in case it is an electrical issue.

SOURCE: As I drive my Suzuki

The clutch cable is got problem.Its got bent/cracked worn out at firewall.---Inspect the clutch cable.------- Get your clutch bled - it is a hydraulic clutch. If that does not improve the situation then you need to get the clutch replaced.It may be a problem with your clutch cover assembly. The only way out for you is to lower your gearbox and check. First bleed your clutch and try though.Clutch hydraulics problem, not allowing the clutch to disengage fully even when the pedal is depressed all the way. ---------The gearbox on most cars have syncro's on all forward gears reverse is a crash gear ( straight tooth gear no syncro)if it sticks going into reverse release the clutch and slot it in again ( doing this will move the gear around.)--------- so you should:---
-bleeding of clutch, if that dosent work then,
-get a complete check of the tranny done(dropping the GearBox) ------------ On a few occasions the problem occurs when the floor mats broke free from their hooks (if they had them) and slid up behind the pedals, creeping over time up and behind the pedal, with the bunched-up fabric preventing the pedal from going all the way down and hindering the clutch from fully disengaging. Take your floor mat out and see if things improve. Or try sliding your seat forward a notch or two from where you usually sit to see if the improved leverage helps. And as the clutch wears (not necessarily worn-out, mind you), the engagement point can go down until you are practically touching the pedal against the carpet, making it more sensitive to things like this.-------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

The location of the reverse switch,Suzuki wagon r+ 2007 1.2

welcome to USA< (Trump waves hello)
The wagon R is not sold here, ever.
but the "R" is SUZUKI largest seller world wide.
my guess this is the m12 engine to work on any suz, its best to know the real name of it, (suzuki has 53+ engines world wide, just petrol alone)
No symptoms stated, is this fun? No reverse lights, or transmission swifts wrong?????????? context is everything,
back to the easter egg hunt now...
next is , what transmissions is there?, auto or stick?

and if an AUTO which one?> they too have names.
for the STICK the reverse switch in on the gear box. somewhere.
usually its just a one switch only box,. so finding be like child's play, no? a one only switch w/ 2 wires.

next up is the reverse, in any automatic. A/T
there are 2 places, but both are in or on the transmission casing
on some if you look, the side of the box, (tranny case)
as this PRNDL switch on the main manual lever end.
in plain site. that be it if seen.
if not there,
that means ITS INSIDE THE BOX. via the plug with many wires on said box.

In some cars if you scan the PCM(did you)
it tells you, RANGE SELECT error, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
a huge clue no lie.

My 2001 Blazer will go forward but doesnt go in reverse. Is there a reverse switch on or near the transmission?

Does the gear selector show that is in reverse? Does the transmission have gear selector solenoids on the transmission? If so, may be a bad reverse select solenoid. Do the 'backup' lights come on when reverse is selected?

When i select reverse gear the engine cuts out, but if i remove a 10amp fuse from the fuse box under the driver's dash it stay's in gear and reverses ok but i lose the indicator's, why is this happening?

you need to check the wires from the shifting lever, when you put it at reverse a wire is caught at the mechanism creating a short circuit that makes it shut off the engine.
