My Elise S1 lost reverse gear


Recommended Posts

As written in the title, I don't have my reverse gear anymore. It happened about two week ago the first time. I got back home, got the car ready to park in my garage and then when I tried to select the reverse, simply I couldn't. Its like it never been there and you can feel only resistance if you try to force the lever there. The weird thing is that as suddenly as it happened, the day after the gear was back, until yesterday when it was gone again.
I actually discovered in August that my gear cables are in bad shape, expecially the rubber rods ends that is gone on one of them, so I think the first thing to look after are those but I'm not sure that they are the whole problem because the other gears still work as intended. What do you think about it?


Also are Eliseparts.com mechanical parts of good quality? I've been tempted many time to buy there for the good prices but never done because I wasn't sure about that.

So this one is a kit to upgrade existing cables (if they are still good) while this https://www.eliseparts.com/products/show/12/1370/ep-tuning-gear-cables/ is the full spare part?

Yup, it's new bushes, bolts etc. The Nylatron bushes are much better than the fitted hollow rubber ones. Took me 45 mins to fit, piece of cake :)
