Hello, I'm Brandon. Unfortunately the reverse gear cannot be adjusted. Typically the it is cheaper to replace the transmission then replace only the band. It could also be a defective valve body. At this time the only economic fix is to replaced it with a rebuilt transmission.

The cost and labor is about $1800.
