Question about 1998 BMW 5 Series
When was last trans fluid & filter change? (I'm assuming it's an auto. trans.) Trans fluid & filter should be changed every 30k or 3 years. I'd start there and have system flushed when you do the filter change.

SOURCE: cannot engage reverse gear
To my understanding this is a common problem with Saab 900s. The cure was to replace the existing linkages with an upgraded one. There was even a recall or service bulletin to this effect.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

No all your problems are by the sound of it are in the top of the box as when you select the forward gears they move 3 rails but the reverse has to go over the gate but going to far then either the stop has moved /broken/ or the selector pin in fork could have come out but i dont no about a 19mm bolt onthe side of the box ........you can try it to see if it turns easy..
