Suzuki vitara91 model wont go into reverse
Either the clutch plates don't have sufficient clearance when the clutch pedal is pressed or they do have the clearance but are failing to separate.
Air in the hydraulic system, worn or maladjusted linkage or cable are the common causes of the first and oil/grease contamination or rusty splines the second scenario.
A failing clutch pilot bearing, if fitted, could also the symptom.

1999 suzuki vitara electrical issue/ after
