Well, it's likely to be that, but you need to check the engagement in the forward gear, as that may also be worn.
I'd also change the O ring, no. 26.

Before stripping it, drain the oil out & check for debris in the oil, also do a pressure test to check for leaking seals.

Tip: when pulling out the propshaft, don't be tempted to turn the bearing carrier and tap the lugs for the 2 bolts that hold it onto the gear casing as they will (not may) snap off.
