Good evening, I’ve recently been doing a bit of work on my Range Rover. Lower steering column, pads and rotors, clutch master and slave... I drove to work in the rain for a test drive, everything seemed fine. I fired her up and drove home, nothing to report, apart from when parking up in the garage... After reversing in, I started to smell burning. I hurried in, switched off and opened the bonnet. I could see two spots glowing red around the new slave cylinder. Has anyone experience this before? I was hypothesising that I had installed the heat shield mat slightly off and it was touching the cat. The whole setup seems flawed by design, with the slave being that close to the slave, it made the change a right PITA, as none of the bolts was visible. Awful picture sorry, hard to see the glowing. Any tips? Is the heat shielding doing more harm then good? Any help appreciated, - Richard
