05 6 speed NSG 370 Reverse Issue

I'm having a worsening issue with my transmission. Shifting into reverse, she don't wanna go in. It seems like it is in gear, but let out the clutch and it pops out. The only way to be sure it is in is to let the clutch out a bit and " pop" it into gear. This is often accompanied by some embarrassing grinding and a bit of stress.
Any thoughts- gladly appreciated.

My 05 does the exact same thing, although I haven't had it happen in a while. Just make sure you are completely stopped before shifting into reverse, and pay attention when shifting to make sure it went all the way into gear. If it doesn't go all the way in; shift to another gear, then shift back to reverse, and it should go in.

Thanks. That's about how I've been dealing with it. What I'm trying to find out is the cause and a possible solution. As it seems to be getting more and more touchy.

My 03 sport does the same thing but mine is a 5sp I know reverse is not synchro so I think the sliding collar on the main shaft of the tranny is wearing out sometimes as I let the clutch out it pops then other times the clutch will be out fully and then it pops

TSB NUMBER: 21-006-05
GROUP: Transmission
DATE: February 24, 2005

This bulletin is supplied as technical information only and is not an authorization for repair. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retreival system,
or transmitted, in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, or otherwise, without written permission of DaimlerChrysler Corporation.
THIS BULLETIN IS BEING PROVIDED IN ADVANCE. DO NOT ORDER PARTS OR
PERFORM ANY ACTIONS RELATED TO THIS BULLETIN UNTIL MARCH 07, 2005.
SUBJECT:
NSG370 6-Spd Transmission - May Not Remain In Reverse Gear When Selected
OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves replacing both the internal shift subassembly and the mainshaft
reverse gear components.
MODELS:
2005 (KJ) Liberty / Cherokee
2005 (TJ) Wrangler
NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with a NSG-370 6-speed manual
transmission (sales code DEH).
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
Upon shifting the 6-speed manual transmission into Reverse, the customer may notice that
reverse gear may not remain engaged.
This condition may follow/develop shortly after an accidental mis-shift into reverse has
occurred. While the vehicle is moving forward and already in a forward gear, instead of
shifting into another forward gear the reverse gear is incorrectly selected. Though reverse
can not be obtained during the mis-shift attempt, damage to the internal shift subassembly
and reverse gear may occur which may later prevent full reverse gear engagement when
reverse is selected properly. The customer should be made aware of proper shift
procedures.
This condition may also occur if the center floor console and/or shifter boot are not
positioned properly.
DIAGNOSIS:
1. Verify that the center floor console and shifter boot are not preventing the transmission
shifter from fully engaging reverse. Verify that the console is centered properly to the
shifter. Verify that the shifter boot is installed properly.
2. If the center console and shifter boot are properly installed, and the transmission fails
to remain in reverse as designed, perform the Repair Procedure.

I have a 2006 NSG370 and it does that too...just have to deal with..i've noticed that if i put it in first and roll forward about a foot before i go into reverse..it usually never pops out..just a trick that works for my jeep...guess it moves the splines a bit and allows it to get in gear easier..i dunno

I was quoted 1300 to repair a bad fourth gear so would think it would be close in price? But I just got rid of it and put a 5 speed in and never looked back!
