    Default Problem with 6 speed reverse (F40) CDTI

    Right guys, Last week my farther crushed my mothers legs in between his vectra front bumper and my mothers corsa. There drive is quite steep and the corsa is parked at he bottom and the vec is always parked close behind it. He had the rear pads replaced 150 miles/ one journey from his works in house mechanics. He placed the car in reverse and upon releasing the clutch and handbrake the car rolled forward and nudged the corsa. Moved back fine and handbrake on. Mother had a look at the rear of her car as my farther reversed again. Yet again the car went forward trapping my mums legs. Hospital job, no broken bones but maybe some ligament damage in her knee.

    So that's the turn of events, so whats the cause? The handbrake in clutch was released at the same time, but the handbrake held the car on the slope fine, although he took it straight up to a mot station and the handbrake failed the test, needed 140 something got 130? Although as said the Pads and Discs and at least one caliper were only 150 motorway miles old.

    This problem has happened again today as he was taking the car back to the company, but this time he was waiting for it. He describes it as if reverse isn't working periodically?

    Looking through a certain bit of software..... it points to no known faults with engaging reverse only disengaging. Having read similar problems with the F23 I mentioned to him that the cables from the gear stick to the box might need adjusting. If they are slack the stick could be fully in the reverse position but not fully engaging it in the box/ selector shaft. Well that's my idea of the problem anyway. He rang his dealer to be told there is no adjustment in the cables, but upon looking at the software there is a section on "cable adjustment" for the F40!?

    Any other ideas guys, I know the Hydraulic clutch and breaks share the same reservoir but I presume the rest of the system is separate. There are no other problems in any other gear just reverse.
