    Hi John
    You should not have it on that model, I had a 06 reg it was ok, I think it's just the new models that get it, I had it a bit on my current MH but have had the upgrade, I might be wrong but that is how I understand it. Pete

    Thanks Peter it must just be my driving :Rofl1:I have to reverse it very close to the wall and it tends to jump suddenly.

    Hi John I had a 2005 model kept it for 5 years with no problems. I'm sure it was either late 2006 early 2007 when the problem arose

    It won't be on a nine year old van, its your technique, maybe don't rev it too much.

    On the newer ones in most cases, the answer was not to use accelerator and let the engine management system get the van moving first.

    just a thought if the van has been stood for a while it could just be a build up of rust on the flywheel / clutch plate causing it to grab.
    a few hill starts will soon clear this up.:thumb:

    Thank you all for replying and putting my mind at rest on this.
    So it looks like the issue is with the nut behind the wheel and I can fix that myself

    could be as simple as a broken engine/gearbox mount... cheap enough to replace

    either way I would guess it needs investigating, plenty here to go on
