Car grinds in reverse?

Got a strange question for you guys who have a manual transmission? I noticed that when I have the clutch depressed to the floor and put the car into reverse while it's moving backwards it wont go into gear...its grinds until I stop the car? Why do I have to stop the car to put it into reverse is this normal?

Damn, guess that makes me feel better but it's just weird cause the clutch gets disconnected from the transmission in reverse too I'm sure but yet it causes it to grind I just don't understand.

Yes it's normal. Think of it like this, Once your engs RPM's get to a point, It's difficult if not impossible to go into a lower gear even with clutch depressed. It's a safty feature. Well reverse only has one gear. More or less same thing is happening even though going slow. You COULD force it in ( I don't recommend it) but technically going into "R" and 1st the car should not be moving even though plenty of us, to include myself roll straight outta "R" into first gear without comming to a complete stop.

Could be a failing clutch, could be a bad reverse gear (I've had both in an old VW Golf I had a long time ago).
OR, it could be that the reverse gear is a straight cut gear (forward gears are mesh or angled), meaning it is not as smooth of a connection made. If you've ever wondered why cars make a whine while reversing, this is the reason.
It also could be that your car needs a clutch linkage adjustment. If the adjustment is correct when the clutch is depressed the gears should stop turning and eliminate the grinding.

My '02 Nissan Altima did the same thing...actually even more restrictive than my Accord.

For me, with the Accord, I can at least put it into 1st or Reverse while slightly rolling; as with the Altima, I had to come to a complete stop to do the same thing.

Like 7thGenCoupe said, it's normal for your MT to do this.

The reason is because there is no synchro for R. Your accord could be brand new, and would grind when shifting into R when moving.
