Its just jumped out of reverse with a bang for the 2nd time this week. Is there a weakness in 16v boxes?

You must make sure that reverse is fully engaged on the 2 litre TS otherwise you get a nice crunching noise instead. Sometimes you have to finish pushing it in whilst releasing the clutch, slowly!

I understand this is a "feature" that gives the car some of its "character".

No, it was definatly in gear properly when it jumped out - with a bang and a shudder that shuck ( :rolleyes: sp?) the whole car.

I'm pretty sure there is a weakness in some of the earlier boxes. I look at a QV once with a "gearbox fault" . There's an occasional clunck coming from somwhere when taking up slack in the drivtrain too.

How the the hell so you spell shook, shouk, shuck????????? Bloody dyslexia. :rolleyes:

reverse is a straight cut non sycromesh gear so the only thing it could be is the selector fork but thats a steel fork on reverse so i dont think its that either.....
i would look at the gearlinkage pivot on the steering rack or maybe an engine mount.
