1984 volvo 240 turbo 4spd/overdrive transmission question

about 12 years ago I had a Volvo Turbowagon. I had a brain freeze and forgot how the car shifted into reverse. I think you pull up on stick button underneath the knob and then…? If you push down on the shifter and to left or pull up and to the left? I have just drove to to many Honda products in the last 12 years to remember. I miss my volvo.

I have a 1985 240 DL (no turbo) and to go into reverse I have to pull up on the ring under the knob and shift the stick all the way to the left then forward. Hope that helps!
