    I have the same problem. My 200HP outboard Mercury will work fine in reverse out of the water. When in the water, it would not go in reverse and makes a grinding noise. If you find any information, email me at

I had the same thing happen to me this weekend. I tried to slam it in reverse after my dog fell off and it sounds like yours. Have you found anything about the issue?

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.

Reverse is out (major grinding, and quad doesn't

It is a pretty big job for a weekend mechanic. You will need some special tools > Impact driver, torque wrench, expanding 'C' ring pliers, case splitter and flywheel puller. The entire engine, top end and bottom end must be torn down. Don't try it without the manual. The clicking noise is probably a broken tooth on a gear. ALWAYS replace gears in sets, ALWAYS. The grinding is most likely a bad bearing.

if you are only having the issue in reverse that would make me lean more towards the transmission having an issue than the clutch.
