REVERSE LOCKOUT MECHANISM CONSTRUCTION/OPERATION [R15M-D]


BHE051117570T02

• A cam-type reverse lockout mechanism is adopted to ensure reliability.

• A cam, which is installed to the shift guide plate in the shift control case, restricts the selector movement to prevent the driver from misshifting.

• When shifting into reverse, by shifting the selector back into the neutral position once and then shifting to the 5th/reverse direction, the selector pushes the cam outward to release the shifting restriction, and shifting into reverse is made possible.
