Seat Ibiza Clutch


I just changed a clutch on a 1993 Seat Ibiza, clutch it cable operated. Since the change, I have had difficulty engaging reverse. There's a horrible crunch when going to engage. I have tried making the cable more taut to ensure the pedal completely disengages the clutch, but this does not help.

Anyone have any ideas?

Only the FORWARD Gears have Sycronizers..
So..try this..
Place the Gear Shift LEVER in 1st-GEAR and then go to the REVERSE GEAR/working off the 1st GEAR syncronizer.

If you continually "bang off" all the forward gears..
you will begin to find BRASS Parts in the trans-pan..
These are the Syncronizers..
Your TRANS is on its way...OUT.
