Hello. I'm helping my mom sell her 2005 Spec-V. It only has 57k miles, but apparently the reverse lockout mechanism broke at 30k miles or so. I have read that this part is particularly fragile and prone to breaking, even at low mileage. I also understand that to get the replacement part it's like $150 - 200 to buy the whole assembly.
I don't mind selling it with this part broken so much, as it's pretty easy to avoid shifting against reverse. However, I find that the shifting is a tiny bit... sloppy? It doesn't feel like it slides into gear without a very tiny amount of grinding.
If I leave the reverse lockout broken as is, is there a way to make the shifting a little smoother?
