I'm struggling to get reverse gear on my 2009 1.8 focus style, the gear seems to locate fine but I get the usual grating of gears when I engage the clutch, I might try 3 or 4 times before I get the gear correctly but even when I am successful it feels no different to the previous unsuccessful attempts. Anybody had similar problems? the car still has a year left on its warranty so I can always take it to the dealers to see what they think.Might just need a bit of adjustment.

Wee tip - if it doesn't go in properly, pop it into first gear then back into reverse, that should help
If problems still there then take it back to the dealer.

Its easier to pop it into 3rd then reverse it will go in 1st time its a common thing and to do with the syncronesh and normal
