So, it jumps out of reverse gear. It's got a Q2 and the gearbox has been rebuilt following a diff failure. Is there a known issue internally within the box that could cause it to jump out of reverse?

Or could it just be that the upper engine mount is worn?

I remember the upper engine mount thing. Also and I know you wouldn't but I will ask. Did you do it up ;)

:confused: did I do what up? The engine mount? I don't think I've had it off but the bolts are tight, not that makes much of a difference - it's falling apart!:lol:

I've just been on to autolusso and ordered a new one anyway (cheers pud!).:thumbs:

Does that really matter? Chris just wants our sugestions......



He can name and shame them later if turns out not to be his fault :elaugh:



What's your bottom engine mount like mate? Think this can also cause that problem.

John, it was done by a gearbox specialist in your area which is why I'm asking.

Regardless of which it was done over 60,000 miles ago (car has done 113,000) so any degree of blame SHOULD it turn out to be a gearbox fault and not some other issue of which the car has plenty still to be resolved, is thereby negated.

I'd appreciate your input but only on the basis you're not going to continue on your blatant witch hunt... (We all know why you asked who dunnit...)

Fundamentally, I can take the gearbox out and I can strip it down at negligible cost. What i'm interested in is fixing it, not apportioning blame to someone who may or may not be liable for something they or may not have done 5 years ago...

(Make with the fixey not war)
