2005 Reverse "pop out"

I have a 2005 Rubi with a 6 speed manual trannie. Putting it in reverse it pops out or is occasionally difficult to get into reverse. I beleive I heard there was a technical bulletin or recall on this. Can anyone confirm that? Any of you fellow jeepers work for Chrysler/dealer that can confirm?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Put it in neutral, let the clutch out, put the clutch in, and try getting into reverse again. I may be mistaken, but I think this results just because the teeth of the gears aren't quite aligned up properly. Seems to happen in all three of the stick shift vehicles I've owned, and several more that I've borrowed/driven for work/etc.

Thanks for the advice. Thats exactly what I've been doing and it helps but still wondered if there is a recall or technical bulletin on this situation.

I read somewhere that with most manual transmission vehicles, you must first put it into a forward gear (ex. gear 1) then put it into reverse. Thats assuming you're starting in neutral. I think it has to do with the gears not being synchronized yet because the reverse gear does not have a synchronizer. I don't know this is all off of the top of my head don't quote me on this as I'm sure it varies from transmission to transmission.

I had this happen with my 95 tacoma it was caused by the master or the slave cylinder having air in the line, if that is the case then it needs to be bled, but I have no knowledge with a wrangler on this so don't take my word, but it might be the case and it might not
