    Recently i drove my car over a curb; nocking out my alignment, blowing out my
    front tires, and cracking my bumber. A few weeks later my reverse stops working
    although all other gears are working completely normal. Looking underneath the
    car, i find that i snapped 1 of 2 metal pieces that are right by my flywheel cover. i have some pics.

    i changed the tranny fluid, and i don't think there is anything wrong with my shift
    linkage. it just feels like their is something in the way of the reverse and it will not go
    in there at all, and this just happened one day out of the blue a few weeks after the
    incident. Does anyone have any ideas of where i should go from here. I would just
    replace that metal piece but im not sure if that alone will solve the problem. Any
    Ideas anyone, any help is appreciated, thanks

    well, i'd replace the metal piece. then i'd take a look at the linkage. it might have gotten bent in the curb smash.

    if it's just the metal piece that would be easy. i'm trying to figure out if the curb smash could cause any damage to the tranny itself besides the linkage; like the shift fork, or anything internally that i wouldn't know about. if anyone has any ideas, it would be much appreciated
