Default new owner too...

As a new old Saab owner myself (94 900 S), I didn't at first realize the manual shifter has a release mechanism just under the shift **** you need to pull-up on to allow the transmission to be shifted into reverse. Hope thats all your problem...

By the way, on my 94, you HAVE to put it in reverse to get the key out of the ignition.
