    If it's only harder when running, the clutch is dagging slightly. It may be a pilot bearing binding up also.
    Reverse is harder because the synchro is not there to help like it is in first.
    A shifter problem would show up running or not.

    Re: Hard going into reverse

    Mine is also difficult going into reverse but I caused that on my own. I was having my exhaust worked on and was in a hurry to install the resistor in the skip shift solenoid and accidentally put it in the reverse solenoid lol. Dumb, I know.

    I had a very similar problem on my previous V, 5-years ago. The problem turned out to be a flywheel that was off which let the internals of the transmission turn making it hard/impossible to get it into reverse. The dealer noticed there was no problem shifting into reverse when the engine was off.

    Have a new monster setup coming for it. Was hoping to have by the weekend but looks like monday maybe instead. So probably next weekend before I have the car running again barring no more problems.
