  1. Mk2 fiesta gear linkage

    Okay so got a 1983 mk fiesta Ghia 1.1 doing a cvh conversion I have a mk3 1.6 escort engine and a xr2 gear box I'm under the understanding I can't use the 1.1 gear linkage but can't find a 1.6 gear linkage and I'm aware the later mk2 fiestas can use mk3 gear linkage but what is the best option do I modify the one I have or is there another gearlinkage I can get hold that will fit with little modification? 
  2. Hope this is the right place. My gear knob looks a little worn on my Fiesta. She is a MK5. Anyone any suggestions on a replacement? I would like a different one. Perhaps something like the MK6 gear knob. Not sure if that would fit though. Maybe you have a better suggestion?
  3. Hi all, I've got a mk2.5 focus with the standard 1 bulb interior light in, now I was just wondering about changing it to one with map reading lights, I've seen some on eBay and I'm not sure if it's the correct one for my car or not and just wondered if they just plug straight in or will have to rewire, if anyone knows I'd just like a bit of advice 😊 Thanks
  4. Hi, I have a serious problem with my 2009 ford focus 2.0 tdci duratorq durashift gearbox. The car stood for 3 months while waiting for funds to do repairs to the diesel pump. I towed the car to a workshop and they got it started for me after much bleeding of the fuel line. But now the car won't go into gear, it can go into neutral and park, while in neutral you can move it. The problem is it will not select a gear forward or reverse.The workshop says that the selector shaft is stuck and they will have to pull the gearbox and strip it, now this will run high in costs and I need to find out before they pull and strip if there is anything I can do first to try solve this problem. I thank you in advance for any advise you give.
  5. Hi all, I have a Ford Fiesta 2003 1.4 Durashift Automatic, the car has issues with 3rd gear. When driving the car will shift into 3rd gear but there will be no bite, almost like the car is in neutral. As you are driving the car will shift into 3rd but then you end up reving to the red line and there is no power. If you let off the gas and let the revs goes down the car will shift into 3rd gear and continue as normal. The issue only happens occasionally. Can anybody offer any advise on how to resolve this issue? Thanks!
  6. Hi, I have a fiesta mk7 zetec s. I'm looking to change my main beam, dipped and fog lights. Can someone give me a link to some? I'm just looking for a more bright white light, preferably with a hint of blue if possible? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  7. I took my focus in for some work doing on the electric seat They fixed the seat but did a software change to the reversing system that has caused it to operate differently to when I first got the car. It now has a black dotted line on the camera screen that it never had, it now displays the grid that I used to have to select if I needed it and the rear half of the cars sensors no longer show up on the small pictograms in the top left of the camera screen, has anyone else had this issue or know why Ford made this change without informing me Any help on this would be greatly appreciated
  8. Hi Everyone, I own a 2010 Ford Fiesta 1.6 TDCI. I have a very annoying rattle which comes from the gear shift cable. I have taken all of the housing off from my gear stick and gear cable and there doesn't seem to be any rattling there. I think the gear cable has been knocked off a clip in the engine bay when my car has been in the garage and thus causing the cable to rattle against a clip. Could someone please tell me where any clips are which hold the gear cable in place or if you believe the problem is something else! It is driving me mad!!
  9. Stiff Gear Changes

    Hey Guys, Noticed on my 2006 Fiesta after about 15 miles my gears become very difficult to change. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Is there an easy / cheap way to fix it? Cheers
  10. Hi, after reading these forums I decided to go for a ford focus as my first car, covering the most common faults I was glad that mine didn't have any of them :) but now owning the car for 3 months... I have a problem which is driving me nuts, its hard to get into 1st gear. When it doesn't go in first I have to press the clutch down again and it goes in/or when i fully stop then it just goes in (without even the need to repress the clutch down). Note, that was a bit of clunking noise when releasing the clutch (past the biting point) when I just bought the car which doesn't happen anymore, so i'm thinking it was just because I was a new driver and was getting to the biting point. Recently Its either in my head or its just getting more annoying to shift through gears, their a bit stiff and not as smooth as they should be. Car: 2006 mk2 ford focus, petrol, 1.6 and close to 100k. Problem: Hard to get in 1st (without depressing clutch again, when downshifting obviously) Other notes: clutch isn't slipping, but I do have to press it fully down (right to the floor) to disengage the clutch There is crunch when switching to reverse Has anyone experienced this before? Thanks :)
  11. Hi, I have a 2006/56 plate Ford Fiesta 1.2, style. I've had it a few months, with no major dramas. Today however in, low revs (1st gear) about 1200 -1500 RPM I felt the car shudder, as I was lifting of the clutch and giving it gas. I initially thought it was just some wheel spin, as it was raining quite heavy. Pulled onto the motorway, car accelerated with no issues, seems fine. Arrive at some lights and I get the same problem in first gear again, and all the way home at roundabouts etc. I'm really confused as to what it might be. I also noticed when parked, and left running in neutral, a gentle metal scraping/grinding sound can be heard coming from the back of the engine - could it be a transmission oil problem? But it selects gears just fine. Has anybody encountered this before? Apologies in advance if I left out any details,let me know if I you need more info! :) Thanks
  12. Fiesta St180 Gear Gaiter

    What up boiz, I've been looking at new gear gaiters for the fiesta st180 and the best/only option seems to be from redlinegoods, but they are an american company and the american fiesta ST doesn't have the silver trim around the gaiter and the base is a different shape than the the UK version. Dosent really look like it will be wide enough but has anyone tried one of these gaiters on a UK Fiesta?
  13. I have been looking for a Colorful Car Gear Shift Head Knob for my mk6 fiesta but not sure where to find one at the right size of threading. any suggestions?
  14. 2.5t Clutch Change

    Hi All, I have recently bought a 2008 plate Titanium X 2.5T model which drives like a dream, however, my one little issue is that it's done 110,000 miles and has a full FSR history but the clutch pedal doesn't seem to have to be depressed very far to change gear. Is this normal for this type of car as I drove a TDCI C-Max before this car and therefore I have no history? Clutch doesn't slip in any gear but I'm just being mindful and would like to hear other people's views.

  18. Changing Front Grilles

    I'm trying to change the front upper and lower grill on my fiesta Zetec S 2014 ecoboost 1lt but not too sure exactly how to get the old ones off? Anyone have any idea? Thanks
  19. I've changed all the ambient lights except the top two little ones where the ceiling light is. How on earth can I change them??? It's the only red part in my car!! Annoying! Please help
  20. I've had my 56 Fiesta for about two weeks or so now (my first car), I love it! Only trouble is sometimes when I attempt to select the reverse gear, from first the car doesn't move. Reverse is definitely engaged as I can see the reverse light in my rear view, but as I release the clutch and give a little gas, there is no movement, instead it revs as if its still in neutral. Has anyone else experienced this or know of the cause? Thanks :)
  21. Hi, I have a late 2010 Ford Focus 2.0 TDCi, with a 6 speed box. It has a lift-up collar for selecting reverse. The other day, it would go into reverse, but wouldn't come out. I lifted the gaiter up, and found the round black plastic clip (plus a small piece of silver plastic inside it) that attaches the gear knob to the reverse selector had broken off. ​It is only a minor inconvenience, as I can just manually reach below the gear knob and pull the selector up when I want reverse, and it correctly disengages from reverse when I move the stick back to the right. However, whilst my car was in today for a different fault, I asked the garage to take a look. They are telling me you can't buy the clip separately, and have to buy the whole selector unit from Ford, at a cost of £220! Can anyone verify if this is true? I can't post a picture of the broken clip at present, as it's still in the car at the garage, but if you've ever had to lift the gaiter up it will be obvious which it is. The garage has always seemed to be honest with me in the past, but I find it hard to believe in this instance. If it is true, then shame on Ford for such blatant profiteering.
  22. Recently serviced my 03 sportka, euro car parts had an offer on Shell Helix so I went for 5ltrs of HX6 (5W30), ever since the oil change once the engine is warm its started being a bit noisy around 3,000 rpm, sounds a bit like tappets to the untrained ear. Car previously had some very good value tripleX which is euro car parts own brand cheap oil, engine ran nice and quiet on this. Realise the cars getting on in years and its just topped 73,000 miles so not looking for perfection but it just feels a bit too noisy. The engine is a 1.6 8 valve Duratec (Zetec Rocam), everything I've read on these engines points to them being pretty tough lumps, and the cars not a hard life. any suggestions welcome, currently planning on swapping out the oil and reverting back to cheap and cheerful tripleX Cheers, Ed

  24. Clutch Clutch Clutch

    Hey guys, Just wondering, but how do I test my clutch? Recently, the bites been feeling quite high. I don't think my clutch has gone yet, as its not slipping but any ideas? The biting point i'd say is about 2 pound coins width from the pedal being fully released. Oh and when I shift gears, recently I've noticed the revs do go up a little, perhaps by 100- 200rpms? Note: When I travel, im always in stop-start traffic if that's of any significance.
  25. Mmt6 Gearbox, Lost 5Th

    Hi Gang I put this problem on Talkford a few weeks ago but didn't get much support so I'm hoping that someone on here has got a clue to what is wrong with my car. My car is a 2007, MK4 Mondeo Titanium X, TDCi 2.0 Diesel, manual gearbox, 140PS and 130k miles on the clock. For a few weeks I've been hearing a squealing sound whenever I'm in 5th gear, and only 5th gear. It's the kind of noise you hear from a train as it pulls up to a station, a high pitched metallic squealing. I was able to accelerate through the problem after a few seconds. It was like a very heavy/clunky automatic gearbox shake when it cleared. I've been living it because I couldn't figure out for certain what it was. I've suspected a vacuum hose split, vacuum solenoid sticky, turbo actuator sticking, gearbox oil needs changing all seem to lead to a dead end. 4th and 6th gear have no problem at all. Tonight, driving home I heard the squeal even before I put my foot back on the throttle, just as I lifted the clutch pedal. Now, I have no 5th gear at all. When attempting to select 5th gear now it's like selecting neutral, just no drive at all. I've spent hours searching online for anyone who's had a similar problem but can't find anything. It seems to me that the gearbox is knackered but I've never experienced such a rapid onset of a problem like this. I heard no crunching, whirring, grinding or anything unusual from the gearbox since I bought the car around 4 months ago. Only work I've had done is a new cambelt, aux belt, water pump (other side of the engine), air and oil filters and that's it. It's starts, runs and drives in all other gears perfectly. If anyone knows anything about these MMT6 gearboxes, I'd appreciate a suggest. Maybe a selector fork failed? I dunno. Cheers
