Hi Steve I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry to hear you are having transmission issues and totally understand how frustrating this can be. Can you confirm the Rac have suggested the issue is with the transmission and fluid replacement is the first step ?

That is correct

When driving the amber coil light illuminated and amber light also saying gearbox fault
Ok so I would recommend that the transmission fluid is replaced first if it’s not been carried out recently. It’s likely you will need a transmission specialist to do this for you
