I have been told that it is the reverse transmission belt...is this accurate and if so what price range am I looking at to repair it?

    L/R band and soft parts about 1/2 that much approx. Just another option. Depends on mileage and how long owner plans to keep it. I guess.
    Now that is if the ancor/servo tab off the band has not torn up other hard parts and pan not full of clutches, so as i say just another option.
    It very well may not be worth repair! Got to take a look though. (I guess this is a 4x4 some were not.) Makes a little diff. in price!

    Reverse band not belt. Can be repaired see an independent trans. mechanic. Not a chain store shop!
