Manual Reverse

I have an '05 Libby sport, with a manual transmission. It seems to grind gears in reverse : . Has anyone had this problem?

I have driven a stick for years and don't think I have burned a clutch after 16,000 miles.

mine doesnt grind going into reverse try holding in the clutch for 5 seconds and then putting it in reverse. i know my old cherokee had this problem. if you went to put it in reverse immediately it would grind but if i held the clutch in for 5 seconds and then put it in reverse it was fine.

or push the clutch in, put it in first, and then put it in reverse w/out letting the clutch out in between. this works well too. i think it has something to do w/ the input shaft still spinning when you push the clutch in.

My old cherokee used to do that all the time, too. Eventually the tranny siezed and I wrecked it.

Have you check the fluid level? Do you park for prolonged periods of time on a hill?

Some vehicles that I have driven in the past with a manual trans, seemed to go into reverse easier if you put it into first gear first and then into reverse. Don't know if this will work but it is worth a shot.
