      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. smax official trouble topic

    I've just had the clutch and DMF replaced in my S-Max 2.0Dti Zetec 59 plate by a local small garage. Before the replacement, there was no problem selecting any gear (just a grinding when releasing the clutch and vibration at slow speeds). However, it is now extremely difficult to select first gear. From a standstill I can get it into first gear by putting it into second gear, then immediately into first gear. All others gears are fine. The garage have said it is due to the gear selector cables being worn and have quoted me £233 to replace. Does this sound right, or could it be the clutch needs aligning? Many thanks.
