Shudder in clutch when reversing

This just started in my 94 defender, when reverse is engaged and I let out the clutch there's a shudder like the clutch is slipping. It also happens when slowly engaging 1st on steep hill.
???

Sounds like your clutch is going. Mine did that before I replaced it.

Lots of clutches do this--i believe it is caused by a slight warp in the clutch plate. Mine does this--but I know I have plenty of life left.

I replaced the clutch 15k ago, but half those miles are off-road. I must be harder on it than I thought. Fluid levels are fine, but do have a very mild oil leak from what looks like oil pan.

I always true the flywheel so the new clutch beds in correctly ....you might get away with cutting flywheel and scuffing the clutch but I wouldn't recommend it . Have to take it apart and inspect the disc

Does the clutch engage at the end of its travel?

Yes, doesn't seem to be a problem once engaged.

The shuttering is due to the disc engaging on a uneven surface

Shudder in clutch when reversing

Since it's engaging/disengaging at the end of the travel, the clutch needs replacing.

Have you driven in any deep water lately? Mine used to do this if I got it wet... Would go away after a bit and dried out.

Oil leak could potentially have the same effect if it's getting on the flywheel surface. Only way that would happen would be from a rear main seal. If it's the oil pan that's leaking I don't see how that oil could get up into the bell housing.

Is the wading plug removed? Do you have a leak at the back of the oil pan?

No wading plug, the leak from the oil pan is in the back of the pan.
