What causes this problem that I have? Sometimes when I try to shift into reverse, the trans would just grind. And no, the car isn't moving when I shift into reverse and the engine and trans are totally warmed up. Do C60 trans have Reverse Synchro?

I dont think it matters whether you're moving or not.
I thought it grinds whenever your revv up those RPM's
Mine grinds if I revv even the slightest bit and shift into reverse

I never rev when shifting into reverse (the RPM stays at 800-850 when I shift into reverse) so that's not the problem.

Does this hurt the transmission at all?

Try to put in some redline MT-90.

I changed the fluid, tried to ease off on the clutch before shifting into reverse but it just won't go away. No worry, if the fvckin' reverse gear is shot, I'll just put the damn thing in Neutral and push it backward.

Won't be practical for daily driving. Reverse will grind from time to time normally, but it shouldn't grind every time you shift into it.

Yea thats my mentality too.

Make the tranny last as long as possible then swap it out when it fails.

I've just recently spent sometime with the damn tranny and figured out how to not make it grind. Basically, I have to slowly, gently put the shifter into reverse and just hope not having to hear that scary noise (somehow my description sounds like my experience of 1st time getting laid :chuckles:). So far, that method's been working fine even though it's annoying. When people see me stop completely and then slowly, gently put my car into reverse, they'll probably think I'm noob but w/e. :sadpace:
