Hi all, I am a newbie to this site so please bear with me if this has been covered before.
I have acquired a Mini 1 R50 2003, drives fine, BUT, now and again it will not go into reverse, won't even look at it, as though there is a block in the selector system, you can try slow or fast or even a bit of brute force, no go. then try again and all is well and remains so for a day or two.
It has been suggested worn cables but surely that would cause problems all the time , there is no clutch drag that I can feel, al other gears select with no problem, so, has anyone had this problem and more to the point, solved it without breaking the bank.?
