Thanks for the links, Phil. I've had the car a couple of years, and it has always been easy to move the shift lever into the reverse slot when shifting to second. I pulled the shifter to check the bushing and clean/regrease the assembly. The reverse lockout situation did not improve upon re-assembly.

Also, variations include the “tabs” on one or two sides:

Is this car new to you?  If not, when did the problem start?  What changed?
