hello, the 5th gear and reverse gear share the same shift rail, most likely the thifter fork for that gear lost the roll pin that holds it in place. So you would need to tear into the trans and inspect the mechanism and replace the roll pin and possibly the shift fork and any related gears/snycronizers that may have gotten damaged during the process.
