Question about 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class
transmission will have to come out to fix this problem unfortunately, check the fluid leave, top up if required but unlikely to cure no
Check and make sure that the transmission isn't over or under filled. If not, the clutches that operate the reverse gear are probably too worn, and don't operate until they are expanded by heat.
Check for loose shift lever bushings under the car on the transmission linkage, maybe it's not going all the way into reverse. Otherwise, you may need to replace the transmission.
You most probably need to replace reverse clutch plates. Not a big deal to remove front pump and replace or adjust the clearance; except that you have to remove the transmission first, which is a pretty big deal, and having removed the transmission is sort of hard to justify not rebuilding the whole thing while you've got it out.
