1992 400E Long delay going into reverse

I have a 1992 400 E that takes 15 seconds to go into reverse gear and sometimes longer. ATF fluid is checked and to the full line.

Any suggestions ?

Common w124 problem...reverse gear clutch pack is worn out so it takes longer for it to fill with trans fluid to engage reverse. Transmission needs to be rebuilt. It's the first sign of a worn transmission. Reverse gear will always go out first. Seen a lot done at my dealer and I've had to do mine personally for that reason. Once its done though the car will run like new.
