300CE 24 (1992) transmission issues

When i start my 300CE 24 from an overnight parking, the reverse gear works after like 30 secs into R-position. But after running the engine for more than 20 minutes, the reverse doen't work no more. The reverse tail lights don't even come on. I hear small whirring sound.

Can someone help me out there?

I am not much of a mechanic, but i am wondering if that is what will happen when the spider gear in the rear end completely fails. The mechanic I took my 87 300E to said the trans was just fine, because that was my concern, only my reverse kicks in about 3-5 seconds after i put it in gear. Just a thought for you to have the rear end checked out, Good Luck.
