transmission problem

I have a 92 Mazda Protege and it is a 5-speed. It will go into every gear except reverse. Do I have to replace the whole transmission? What do you think the problem is and my husband needs to fix it himself (not a transmission shop):

When's the last time the clutch and fluid were changed?

My bet is that it is also going into overdrive alittle hard as well?

Those transmissions have a sycro problem that affects reverse/overdrive. There is a repair kit available that address this problem.

A friend of mine bought a car and was told by the owner that second gear had a bad syncro. He drove the car for a year without second gear before he pulled the transmission only to find out that the transmission was fine and the shifter needed a slight adjustment.
