      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Stiff Gearbox On My 2003 Focus..

    Is the gearbox supposed to feel quite tight? I have to say its the only car were you dont have a great deal of play in neutral. Iv been told its a feature of the gearbox on these cars?
  2. Ever since I bought my 2003 Focus 1.6 Zetec, its had quite a stiff gearbox. There is very little movement when its in neutral and at times I struggle getting it into the correct gear. I was told when I bought the car it recently had a new clutch, the clutch is springy and feels new. I was told to maybe lift the gaitor and put some engine oil in to try and lubricate it. Not tried this but thought I would see what others suggest? Stu
  3. My first post so I would like to say Hello.. Iv currently got a 2003 Focus 1.6 Zetec in Silver. Cracking little runner, 112k miles but drives like new. I bought the car September 2012 and it has never failed to impress me. Always starts, never had any problems and drives lovely... Had a 52 plate Focus TDCi Ghia before this, the less I say the better, had nothing but problems with it. Im well known on a couple of BMW forums but my little Focus is doing me well for the time being... Stu
