I have an SVT focus(manual), same problem. I tried to adjust the Orange mount, but with no success of finding reverse... all the other gears work fine... know of any secret that might help me?

those springs have a tendency to come out of the little slot on the little part you pull up i have the lx but my friend has a se and it's happened to him before but that little spring is what lets you go into reverse so if it's out by a little it's going to fuck with you
