  • NF jumps out of Reverse in Low Range - Help

    Wondering if you guys might be able to help. I bought an 1989 NF Pajero a few years ago and it is a 2.6L EXE. My problem is that in low range the car goes fine forward, just if I try to select reverse it pulls the 4WD range selection into neutral. There is no way to force it into reverse whilst in Low Range. This has been the case since I bought her and it makes serious 4wding impossible. The gearbox works fine in all other positions.

    Anyone know what the problem may be, before I pull the gearbox out?

        My NG turbo diesel doesn't have this problem, it isnt a safety feature as it effectively stops you from reversing out of a bad situation when off road. I'd get it checked out.

        There isnt a body lift on the car is there? If so might be an issue with the gate and the angles.
