[:0] No wonder they don't wanna fix it, it sounds like a busted gearbox! Are you positive it only does it in neutral?

James - could also be a clutch on the way out. Mr Addison (red sei schumacher at Gaydon) had a new clutch fitted under warranty on his.

Jonna - check / change your oil first.

My Series 3 Land Rover makes a metallic, almost grinding noise when in neutral. It stops when I press the clutch. I think it needs adjusting.

Does your noise stop if you fully engage the clutch?

Rite my gearbox oil is fine bcos Fiat changed it about 4 months ago anyway new info in the strange noise. Rite which i 1st start from cold there is no metal kinda pinking noise from the rocker cover jus my fan belt squeeling a bit. Once it warmed up the fan belt is quiet and the metal pinking noise is back [?] But somedays its fine other days its quite bad and the car still drives fine.
