Shifts into reverse without pulling the ring

Recommended Posts

Hello I`m having an issue with my Ford Galaxy Zetec 2.0 tdci 6 speed manual its a 56 reg new shape

The problem is sometimes when i shift in to first gear it goes into reverse instead even thou i did not pull up the ring that allows you to engage into reverse.

I have tried removing the trim around the gearbox to see the safety lock out mechanism , and it looks okay and functions well 

so how am i able to shift in reverse ?

anyone who has any ideas please help

Thank you

Could be the spring between the collar and gearknob has become squashed.
Unscrew the knob and take a look at the spring.
It's quite weedy so may be allowing the collar to ride up on changing gear thus allowing the reverse lockout to jump.
