Nissan Versa 1.6L 2012 CVT Tranny not reversing

Hello all,

I've recently rebuilt my Nissan's crappy CVT transmission for a Nissan Versa 2012 SV 1.6L after the belt snap and broke apart inside the tranny. I'm working on a youtube video to help others out there to not spend all that money having the dealership do it. I've ran into a problem.

First off the following were done:
1. Valve Body, replaced all 5 solenoids, rebuilt clean, using the same EEPROM
2. Replaced entire CVT Pulley Assembly, primary, secondary, and belt
3. Seals, o-rings,
4. Clutch Pack
5. Trans Oil Pump
6. Oil cooler filter and trans filter

The vehicle drives amazing, quiet, smooth, and works perfectly fine, even drove on the freeway. Parking works, neutral works, low gear works. However, when putting onto reverse, it's as though its on neutral, the car wants to drift forward, stepping on the accelerator just raises the RPM. I've checked the position switch was correct and it wasn't in between gears or anything.

No codes are coming up

What could the issue be that is not registering so the reverse clutch can be applied. I have no issues pulling out the tranny again. But before doing so would like to know if there's anything else to check, and if needed to pull out the tranny, what is there to look for that could be causing the issue. I've recorded the entire process of the rebuild and trying to see where something I've done was incorrect, but haven't yet seemed to notice anything done incorrectly.

Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
