Sounds like you'll need a new reverse gear set. Not really an easy fix you have to remove and open the transmission. If you have too much metal in the oil you might need a new transmission seeing it probally already damaged much more like other syncros or bearings inside.

SOURCE: VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle

No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.

SOURCE: have a 97 tahoe when put in reverse transfer case

There is a snap ring at the back of the transfer case that breaks. It can be fixed without removing the transfer case. Remove the rear driveline and the small housing at the back of the case. The snap ring holds the bearing in place.

reverse gear often breaks a tooth in vw engines and breaks tooth on main shaft. unit clicks but can run for years like that then one day the broken tooth finds its way into destroying gearbox. Main shaft costs $400 plus. find good used box from the clunkers.

Seized gear box.


check the selector levers for wear and possible jamming or if you have the lever directly into the top of the box then check the lever pivot pin in the turret of the gear box.

What is it when in reverse the automatic transmission on a 1999 Camaro grinds?


Reverse is not "synchronized" forward gears are, so it does make some noise, try shifting to 2nd before engaging reverse to slow gear rotation and limit gear clash or grind.

No reverse for 1995 Saab 900s


This is almost certainly the case. The gears selector on the gearbox is worked by rods connected to the gear lever and minor mispositioning (often when you have had a clutch change) will cause this issue. Reverse always seems to be affected most by this issue. You might be aboe to fix it yourself, but without a little knowledge you could of course make it worse. I wouldn't spend out on a SAAB dealership to fix this though, a confident and competent local mechanic will probably sort it out for you at a much reduced cost.

If there is a grinding noise then you have a rev. gear, sounds like a clutch issue to me.
