    confused Gear cable puzzle

    Gear cable on the estate 06 plate, it had broken free from the peddle thing in engine bay, secured with cable tie but now got new one that my partner's dad had from the hatchback 06 plate which he buy to repair repairable salvage cars,

    Upon fitting the new one, fits right and clicks in well.

    After altnerator and starter motor repair, I started car and runs smooth, as I'm parked on drive that scoops downwards, I selected reverse to reverse out, low and behold, I hitched forward! Thinking umm.. Maybe I didn't put it in reverse properly, handbrake on hard, carefully selected reverse. Still goes forward. Very puzzled, I choose all 1st to 6th gear to see which goes reverse, none did! All forward. So now I am puzzled!

    Is the estate gear cable different in any way, form or length to the hatchback gear cable?? My car is exclusiv estate, his car Sri hatch same 1.9 cdti 150.
