My 2001 Porsche Boxster S is not engaging the reverse gear. No problem with other gears, the car runs fine.

Hello, I'm Brandon - Porsche tech.

Easy fix and it is a common problem with the early Boxster.

No more than half hour fix. Remove the center console out. You should see a linkage popped out of place and could not engage the forward shifts. Most of the time the linkage just pop off. Bring it to shop if you want and they could probably charge you half hour time.
