Ocassionally when engaging reverse gear I get a clicking noise as if the starter isn't engaging properly. If I engage 1st gear with the motor running, go into 2nd and back to neutral it engages and works fine again. Just wondering if I have a potential problem as at the moment it is more of annuisance than a problem given that it only happensnow and again. Anyone else experience this problem.

Is it just a single click or a series of clicks? If single iy may just ba a loose battery connection or bad connection at the starter. If it is more than one click and the connections are good then the starter idle gear may be to blame. Only heard of one other case of this.

It is a series of clicks until you release the starter switch that sounds as if the starter is turning but it isn't engaging reverse properly. It appears that the neutral position has an effect because when you play about with the gears with the engine running it will eventually engage and work normally. :(

I hate to say it but it sounds like the idler gear. I hope you Wing is under warranty as this is a big job.

I know what you mean Ciaran. As I have stated it is only now and again it happens so I am not too concerned about it. If it get worse then it is time to worry. :waving:
