Hi Allen, my name is***** is a very common problem with the Mercedes 722.3 and 722.4 transmission. Assuming that the fluid level is ok you will need to remove the transmission and replace the reverse clutches. In most cases I recommend a complete overhaul but replacing the reverse clutches will restore reverse operation. In some cases the reverse clutch support breaks and will need to be replaced.

Let me know if you have any questions. Please remember to rate my service as this is the only way that I can receive credit from the website for helping you.
