I recently took delivery of a very cool 544. The car shifts excellent except for getting it into reverse. The effort to pull it past the reverse lock out is so difficult that my wife isn't strong enough to pull it over into the de-tent before shifting forward to engage reverse. Is there any adjustment that can make this easier?

I have looked at the 40 schematic and it has a spring located on the top of the transmission where the shifting rod goes in. Will backing off the nut make it easier? And can you get at it from inside the car by removing the boot?

Thanks

Dave

When shifting into reverse be sure the car is not at high idle, push in the clutch fully, shift to low (first gear) then neutral then directly to reverse.
