    My guess is you're talking about a "boot" over the shift lever that has to be pulled up to allow going into reverse. Other cars had the requirement to slightly turn the shift lever or push a button on the know to go into reverse. My 09 doesn't have any "security" in this regard. If any of those mechanisms break they would quite likely keep you from shifting into reverse.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Reverse lock collar? It prevents you from shifting into reverse without lifting it up. Safety feature on only the 6 speed transmissions.

    its in an 02 wrx sorry i didnt add that. My car does not have the lock. when I try to shift it into reverse the gate is blocked out. this car sat for a long time after an accident, im just wondering if the sleeve failed in some way and locked the gate out. linkage looks fine ive taken it apart twice and have no change. my next step would be to pull the sleeve but looking to see if that could even be it before i do that.

    thanks all

    If it's stuck and in no way will go in reverse, something's either wrong at the gate, or wrong at the gear in the gearbox, which figuring out would probably require splitting the case.

    Or...I have no idea what I'm talking about? I'm only used to the 6spds. Sorry

    It's something mechanical that's is blocking the the gate to protect it. I've changed the reverse light switch, neutral switch and checked linkage. Just trying to find little things first before I pull it.

    Judging from your join date, I'm assuming you've already tried the "Subaru shuffle" for getting the reverse cogs to engage? While the reverse gear doesn't have a true "syncro" in the same sense the forward gears have, it does have some mechanism for synchronization which I suppose could wear out over time. There is nothing at the shift gate to block reverse, it's all internal. I've never hear of a physical reverse "lockout" mechanism for bugeyes other than the dog leg gate pattern so you don't accidentally shift into "6th" at freeway speeds, haha.
