Newbie 5th Gen 99 5sp won't go in reverse

Is this an easy fix? Do we need to drop the gearbox to really find out. Has anybody else had this same problem?

If it feels like you can't go into reverse at all and every other gear is fine it is most likely your shift links located under the air box. I had the same problem and brought it over to my friends shop and needed to replace my shift links. If not, you probably have a trans issue. I'm not too sure if the 99 have synchros for reverse but that can also be an issue.

M2Y4 and M2U4 have sychros on reverse. You could try letting the car roll back and see if it will slide in to reverse eaiser. If not then you probably need to drop the trans. What ever you do don't force it you will have more trouble on your hands.
