      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. Hello All, I have had a '04 Fiesta LX 1.4 Durashit since August '13 and it has always been problematic. It has all of the symptoms described in the original post (some slow gear changes and on a rare occasion the yellow cog of death...) and also the occasional clutch judder at pull off (happens when trying to pull away very slowly - like in slow traffic) as mentioned by someone earlier (this may require a further procedure ). I have had the car looked at by independents and the Ford main stealer - Who quoted me £2500 to "maybe" fix it, and charged me £100 for the privilege!! As the car has devalued so much I've now decided to try and fix the problem myself. I have some mechanical experience, service, brakes, timing belts, clutches, etc. With many vehicles from cinquecentos to transits, So in theory this should be a piece of p*ss. B) But I take nothing for granted!!! I will take up the gauntlet of filming the procedure and I'll upload it to YouTube, *if I succeed*. If not I will disappear quietly into the cyber darkness... Wish me luck...
