The rear band is for low/reverse, and applied in those positions only. The band is applied in manually shifted low gear for engine braking effect. So, you will still have low gear if the band failed but see if you have engine braking when you let off the throttle. Shift trans to the manual 1st/low position and accelerate to higher speed for 1st gear then let off the throttle. If engine speed drops to idle or near idle then the band is not applying, if engine decelerates with the vehicle speed then the band is applied.
