Can't put C180 into reverse gear

Hi guys,

I'm looking after a mate's house for the next few months, and he left me his car to use, but when I went to drive it today I couldn't put it into reverse gear (it's a manual, right hand drive - and I've driven manual cars all my life).

Is there some trick, because I'm sure the car works fine...

I believe it's a 1998 model.

Anyone know what the problem might be? According to the gear stick reverse should be on the left hand side of second gear, but it just won't go past the line of 1st and second gear, it goes into second gear everytime.

So any help would be appreciated...thanks!
