    That's not how I read post #6. Perhaps the op could clarify ... ?

    Looks like I misread his post. Clearly he states rear left had moved back 10 mm.
    Could be rear subframe that has moved. Quite possible rear subframe was not sitting right to start with as most mechanics are unaware of the special tightening sequence.

    Enlighten me .... �� Just had my Roadsters subframe lowered for starter replacement & never particularly noted anything that might suggests a sequence other than location lugs for the front 2 bolts.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's as simple as rear subframe that has moved on the bolts. Health issues means I haven't been able to investigate yet but witness marks around rear subframe bolts and mounting area is what I'll be looking for.
    MOT, and tax, has expired so car is off the road and as I've got another car to use (assuming wife hasn't gone out !) then want to take my time in sorting the problem out.
