    He probably hasn't sorted it because in his eBay listing there is no mention of 4WD in the specs.

    Happened to check another Freelander and noticed in the comments that they had a shifting problem on the auto box between 2nd & 3rd.....

    "so we asked a garage to change the gearbox oil - it hadn't been done before. She came back from the garage with no reverse gear and still has the selector/smoke issue under heavy load"

    Poor bugger!

    So in other words the garage undid the wrong bolt when changing the gearbox oil and let the reversing pixies escape. Standard.

    Exactly, poor bugger. Probably doesn't even know, just thinks the box is on its way out.
