      I'd like to ask you a question, sorry in advance. After driving my repaired (LUC groan) L332 about 600 miles with about 1 hour up steep mountain roads I parked up and left the car about 15 mins. I went back to the car, started it and attempted to select reverse. It wouldn't engage in Reverse and instead slipped into neutral and then the engine cut out. The dash warning I think said "select neutral". I restarted the car having put it back into park and it did it again. I thought at the time maybe it had overheated as the uphill journey would have been quite hard on the gear box etc. It did eventually find reverse and all was fine and nothing since even along the long journey home.
      This weekend, I drove it 2 miles and parked up, went back to start her up and similar happened. It wouldn't drop into reverse, instead found neutral then cut out/died. I turned it over once/twice more then all was fine. Any ideas what this maybe. I will post this in a mo too. Cheers very much. Simon

      A quick question if I may, I'm having the oil checked tomorrow and am expecting it to be full of bits etc as I'm convinced everything you says leads to the TC LUC. If the garage cannot do the (big) job before a trip to the Alps on Friday next week, is it going to bugger up my car even more? Its petrol/gas. Would I be advised to use sport mode wherever possible...any tips if the garage cant get the job done in time? Don't tell me to abort the trip! cheers Simon

      Hello Saint.V8
      It looks like you have a considerable amount of knowledge with RR's and I would be really pleased if I could get to the bottom of my two issues raised today. I'm just outside Dorking and cannot find a garage that knows the RR inside out. I guess you can see my posts easily enough.?
      I suspect that I have had the water problem for some time as there are water marks all over the padding behind the rear plastic pillar cover. I have tried some sealant today at the chassis joint near the tailgate hinge bolts. Fingers crossed.
      The groaning noise is well annoying too and I have two long trips planned, one in 2 weeks, the other in the summer. Rear diff oil changed at advice from local garage, made no difference.....any ideas more than welcome. cheers
