[DML] Re: Reverse grinding

It sounds like the clutch isn't fully releasing when stepping on the
clutch. Be sure you are stepping all the way down on the clutch pedal
and you give the trans a chance to stop inside. You are not supposed
to shift into reverse while moving. If it still grinds recheck the
linkage adjustments. If you still have trouble and you have the
plastic line replace it with the braided steel one and rebleed the
clutch. The clutch and trans will not "work in". After you get this
grinding fixed you may consider changing the oil in the trans to flush
out the wear from the grinding. Grinding (milling) the flywheel is
pretty routine but if they took too much materiel off it could be part
of the problem. This is a little weird, if it doesn't grind 1st it
shouldn't grind reverse unless you try to shift into reverse while the
car is still moving.
